Serbian School in Zrenjanin, "Dositej Obradovic", to celebrate rescues of American Airmen in "Operation Air Bridge" (Halyard Mission - Misija Haljard) !


A young man named Simo Corovic, is announcing that on April 9, 2010, at his school, "Dositej Obradovic" in Zrenjanin, Serbia, the school will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with a very special program, "Operation Air Bridge" dedicated to the rescue of American airmen in WWII Serbia. The special guest speaker will be the USAF Attache in Belgrade, Lt. Col. John Cappello. The program will begin with a moment of silence dedicated to Halyard Mission radioman Arthur Jibilian who recently passed away, and who is being mourned in Serbia as well as here in the United States.

This is indeed an important event, for it is the first time the students will be hearing of this historic episode in Serbian and American history.

Thank you very much to Simo Corovic, Sekretar of the school, for sharing this information. I wish you complete success and many more such celebrations in Serbia as the future brings to light what the past has hidden for too long.




IN SERBIAN, FROM SIMO COROVIC, who, in his announcement, also sends his condolences to the family of Arthur Jibilian:
