My father, S/SGT Donald D. Dorfmeier was interned at Stalag Luft VI in mid Aug 1944, following his aircraft being shot down of 4 Aug 1944.  He was a waist gunner on B-17 42-107098. Later, my father was transferred to Stalag Luft V, participated in the "hunger march" and escaped along with five other prisoners prior to the end of the war.  Presently, I am finishing a book manuscript he started 35 years ago.  Leonard Rose gave me you E-mail address.
