Pilot John Waldron was KIA during the Battle of Midway.

With Veteran's Day right around the corner, SDPB is proud to give you the story of 2 World War II Heroes.  John Wilkinson was a RAF pilot and now resides in Spearfish, SD.  He shared his story with independent producer John Mollison.  Fort Pierre resident John Waldron was a pilot killed during the Battle of Midway.  Today, the bridge that connects Ft. Pierre and Pierre is named in his honor, plus his story and a drawing of his airplane are the newest additions at the Pierre Airport.

 

You can watch encore performances of Dakota Life throughout the month on SDPB 1 or watch it now:
