We lost an incredible man today - Frank "Bud" Buschmeier. Bud flew as a Waist Gunner on the John Gibbons crew, and became a POW when his B-17 went down over Merseberg on 29 July 1944. Bud was an active attendee at 100th Bomb Group Foundation reunions, along with his wonderful family, and he is also a former president of the 100th Bomb Group Association. Bud gave several interviews over the years about his war-time service, and he proudly carried on the legacy of the Bloody Hundredth. He was a family man, a patriot, and a member of the greatest generation. Here is a small tribute to Bud....Matt Mabe Learn more about:
