Lt. Richard V. Keywan, 352nd Fighter Squadron Follow Up Post

I’ve been absent from the blogosphere for quite some time – planning the forthcoming reunion and other 353rd history related endeavours are my only excuse. Hopefully I will resume posting more regularly in the near future. In the meantime, Laurent Herisson has kindly got in touch with some photos of the memorial dedication on May 8, 2015 in his home village of Gaudreville. I’m sure you will join me in thanking Laurent for all his endeavours to ensure Lt. Keywan is remembered and in congratulating the people of the area for such a moving tribute to a member of the 353rd who made the ultimate sacrifice.
