Saying a Thank You to Lt. Richard Fassl on Memorial Day-- Part 2
Loving his new country, Richard Fassl did what he knew was right. He joined the military. The U.S. Army Air Corps sent him overseas to the European Theater.
There he joined the 93rd Bomb Group, 328th Bomb Squadron.
He never came home.
His remains are not home either, buried in the U.S. Military Cemetery at Cambridge, England.
Every year on the anniversary of Lt. Fassl's death, the article writer, William Dodd Brown, ties a bouquet of flowers to his memorial at Fullerton and Orchard streets in Chicago.
