Stephen Metcalf's speech:

From Donald Menzi, July 2, 2006,
I recently came across a reference in a 1921 letter to an Ohio clergyman named Metcalf, and I wondered if he could be related to Stephen Metcalf, who spoke at the 60th anniversary celebration. I didn't find out, but found it interesting that when I "googled" Stephen Metcalf I found that the first listing was the speech he gave to us. The surprising thing that it was posted on the web site of the U.S. embassy in Beijing. The web address is:


Mary Taylor Previte, who was liberated from the Weihsien Concentration Camp in Shantung Province, China, wants to find members of the crew who flew the B-24 that carried the 7-man DUCK MISSION that parachuted from the bomber to liberate the camp on August 17, 1945.

Mary was 12 years old. She and her 2 brothers and a sister had not seen their missionary parents for 5 1/2 years.

The flight is believed to have departed from Hsi-An (now called Xi-An), Shensi Province, China, in the early hours of August 17, 1945, and flew about 600 miles to Weihsien where members of the DUCK MISSION parachuted at about 400 feet. The team liberated 1,500 Allied prisoners.

If you have information about the crew of the ARMORED ANGEL, please contact
