Sterling P. Owen IV speaks at a ceremony in Cynthiana, Ky., Nov. 13, 2023, to present a posthumous Prisoner of War Medal on behalf of his late uncle, U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Jack Henry Owen. General Owen, who served in the Kentucky Air National Guard for more than 24 years, rising to become assistant adjutant general for Air, was piloting a B-17 Flying Fortress over Hamburg, Germany, on July 25, 1943, when the aircraft was shot down. He and his crewmen safely parachuted to the ground but were captured by German forces, and Owen remained a POW for the duration of World War II. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Dale Greer)
