I wanted to share this family photo of Victor Vlahovich with the community. Victor is my wife's 1st cousin, once removed. A B17 pilot, Victor's plane was shot down over the Ploesti Oil Complex in Romania on July 15, 1944. He and all members of his crew perished. Victor was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters and the Purple Heart. He is buried in the Florence American Cemetery in Italy.
