“…into the wild blue yonder…”

Andy 1

Alton D. Anderson (“Andy”) moved on from Fort Dix and the 34th to eventually become a heavy bomber for the United States Army Air Forces.

A year after graduation from Advanced Flying School in Georgia, Andy was captured over Germany and sent to Stalag Luft I. According to a WWII online memory project dedicated to Stalag Luft I prisoners called “Stalag Luft I Online,” Andy was housed in the North 1 compound of the camp until he was eventually liberated.
