Crazy brave pilot

Milan Rastislav Štefánik is known as an astronomer, politician, Czechoslovak Minister of War, general and tireless fighter for the freedom of Czechoslovakia. However, the profession of military pilot also played an important role in his life. Above all, air operations over the Serbian front. As a fighter pilot, he experienced firsthand the collapse of the Serbian front and part of the tragic retreat anabasis through Albania.

Modest hero Colonel Josef Ščerba

Colonel Josef Ščerba was a telegraphist for a Czechoslovak RAF bomber squadron in Great Britain during the war, and after his plane was shot down he almost died in the North Sea and then suffered German captivity. After returning from England, he served briefly in the Czechoslovak army before the Communists expelled him from the army after February 1948.

Until something happens

Andy Šándor celebrated his 50th birthday on Tuesday, July 10, 2007. Many people came to congratulate him at the Military Club in Prague-Ruzyně, many generals in civilian clothes and uniforms, including the Chief of the General Staff, many reporters in active service and in reserve, as well as many civilians. Pleasant environment and nice people. The Chief of the General Staff Vlastimil Picek awarded Šándor the Honorary Badge of the Czech Armed Forces of Přemysl Otakar II, King of Iron and Gold - I think this should be taken as a certain expression of rehabilitation.
