Darrell Robins Lindsey



Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
    Gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh,    
    Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
    From the sky.
All is well, safel
y rest,
    God is nigh.

Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
    Shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear,
  Friend, good night.

Born: December 30, 1919 at Jefferson, IA

Entered Service in the US Army Air Corps from Storm Lake, IA

Earned The Medal of Honor During World War II For heroism August 09, 1944 at L'Isle Adam RR Bridge, Seine River, France

Died:  August 09, 1944 at the age of 24

Captain Lindsey was leading thirty B-26 (Martin) bombers on a vital mission over Pontoise, France on August 9, 1944 to destroy a strategic, enemy-held railroad bridge over the Seine River. During the bomb run his aircraft was hit and the right engine burst into flames. Knowing the gas tanks might explode, Captain Lindsey maintained his course to complete his bomb run. He then ordered his crew to bail out, while struggling to maintain control of his rapidly falling aircraft to facilitate the evacuation of his crew. The last crewman to leave the crippled B-26 was the bombardier, who offered to lower the wheels in order to permit Captain Lindsey to bail out through the nose hatch. Realizing such action might jeopardize the bombardier's own chance of escape by throwing the airplane into a spin, Lindsey refused and ordered the bombardier to jump to safety. Immediately after the last crewman jumped from the plane, it broke into flames, then exploded in mid-air killing Captain Lindsey.
