Members of the French and Royal Air Forces assist family members of Squadron Leader Roger Bushell, Royal Air Force, and Sous-Lieutenant Bernard Scheidhauer, Free French Air Force, unveil the memorial dedicated to the two men outside the West Gate of Ramstein Air Base, Germany, July 1, 2017. The two airmen were the masterminds behind the “Great Escape” that took place March 24, 1944. During the Escape, 76 Allied airmen escaped from the prisoner of war camp Stalag Luft III at Żagań, Poland. Although, they only made it as far as Saarbrücken, Germany, they were arrested on March 26, and interrogated. On March 29, under the pretext of being returned to their prison camp, Bushell and Scheidhauer were driven to a bridge near Ramstein and killed. Throughout the following days, 48 of their fellow escapees were executed. The commemorative stone was made possible through the support and efforts of the German, U.S., British, and French communities. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.

"A lot of times in life we grow up with one ideal and one way of understanding the world. That’s comfortable for us. Sometimes we have to challenge ourselves to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. For a big part of my life, I grew accustomed to act like the few other gay people in my small Central American town, never "too gay", never "open" and never speaking about sexuality. Homosexuality in any form was greeted with insults and many times violence, which I sadly had my fair share of. Perhaps, we could gain a different perspective on life and learn more. Instead of disregarding the gay lifestyle and the gay ideals, how about taking a step forward and put yourself in our shoes? Maybe understand what it means to be a gay person. I continue to celebrate pride, so that youth who went through what I had to, or worse, can also one day have the pleasure of feeling loved, feeling accepted and feeling free." -U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Jose Echaverry, left, 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron central storage supervisor

Senior Airman Sean Echaverry, right, 86th Medical Squadron surgical technician- “I believe celebrating LGBT and being a part of pride is important because you’re celebrating who you are, the history and understanding the people that went before you and have fought for your rights. We’re still standing up for our rights of who we are, who we believe we are.”
