Inscription on the sign:
A tribute to Serbian villagers of WWII
Each flag displayed here represents one of five-hundred (500) American Airmen who were “shot down” or forced to land (behind enemy lines) in German occupied Serbia during WWII. Serbian villagers rescued, protected, and cared for these Airmen while they were unable to care for themselves.
These five-hundred flags are in honor of the thousands of Serbians who gave their lives that 500 American Airmen might live. We and our families will be forever grateful for their sacrifices.
This display is made possible through the courtesy and support of VFW POST NO. 3283 of HUBER HEIGHTS, OHIO which has been instrumental in bringing this message to all Americans.
(Approved by The National Committee of American Airmen rescued by General Mihailovich)
