Jefferson, Iowa: The Lindsey Memorial

The Lindsey Memorial once stood at the Lindsey Air Station in Wiesbaden, Germany.  When this Air Force base was closed, the monument was returned in 1993 to Greene County, the home county of Captain Darrell Lindsey.  Lindsey was a World War II Congressional Medal of Honor recipient whose B-26 airplane took a direct hit and by his skillful maneuvering, the crew was able to parachute to safety. Captain Lindsey went down with his aircraft on his 46th bombing mission.
