I have been taking the time to cruise through the Zerega family web site, this morning, and was very interested to see the story and pictures of Joe Zerega's bombing mission and capture by the Germans. I am again reminded of the story that my grandfather, Frank, told me, of Joe telling him that the German doctor, who had been caring for him, when he was a prisoner, said, when the tables were turned, "You were my prisoner, now I am yours."
