A collage of photos shows (clockwise from left): Dean Tate in his Air Corps uniform during World War II; Godelieve Van Laere, the girl who saved Dean Tate's life after his plane was shot down over Nazi-occupied France; and documents that helped shuttle the lieutenant bombardier out of France and back to the safety of Allied forces during the war. Dean Tate's daughter, Susan Tate Ankeny, of Camas, tells the story of her father's rescue in her new book, The Girl and the Bombardier.
