A Buckeye Hero Comes Home

The remains of a World War II pilot from Ohio are identified, 75 years after his plane was shot down over Germany. The remains of Army Air Forces 1st Lt. Steve Nagy will be buried in his hometown of Lorain at a date yet to be determined. He was 23 when he was piloting the B-17 Flying Fortress. It was shot down over Merseburg, Germany, in August 1944. Four survived and were captured, while five, including Nagy, were killed. The Defense POW Accounting Agency said Nagy’s’ remains were recovered from a cemetery in Germany shortly after the war but remained unidentified until the agency was able to take another look this year.
