Cecil Rhodes, Veteran
USA – WWII
Brookhaven, Mississippi – 09-06-20
ABOUT THE MISSION:
At age 22 he was drafted in the Army Air Corps and served until the end of WWII in 1945. When he sailed back into New York City, he was welcomed home by the Statue of Liberty. His three brothers also served in the war; one made the ultimate sacrifice in France at the age of 20. As the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII approaches he said the worst thing he experienced in wartime as ground support crew in England were the repeated bombings that hammered out so much destruction on the cities nearby and the loss of friends who sacrificed their lives in support of their country.
