Berlin airlift recipient

Doris Galambos (pictured with Gail Halvorsen and the Berlin Bear mascot) was 7 years old when she and her two brothers shared a piece of hard candy that dropped out of the sky over Berlin, Germany, where they lived. At the time, she didn't know where the candy came from, but she never forgot it. A retired circus performer, she is now 68 and living in Sarasota, FL.
