This 1944 photo of Dick Sheehy in Yugoslavia shows the result of having eaten little more than twice-daily bowls of watery soup made from dried beans or peas for months. Lack of food—for both the airmen and their Serbian protectors—was pervasive, as the Germans had taken everything. Sheehy weighed 180 pounds when he bailed out of his B-24, and three months later he weighed 113 pounds. “We were skin and bones,” he said. Photo courtesy of the Sheehy family.
