WWII POW Experience

presented by

Bob Doolan
bio photo

Bob was a St. Xavier high school valedictorian, Army Air Corp Navigator, WWII POW in “Stallag 13”, BSA Scoutmaster for 33 years, and he graduated in Civil Engineering from UC in 1953. Bob celebrated his 100th Birthday this past March. He still gives lectures for Mt. St. Joseph University's Lifelearn Program, and he regularly conducts historical and cultural tours of Cincinnati. An early interest in flying led Bob to leave Cincinnati to go to the West coast where he earned a pilot's license just before WWII. After Pearl Harbor Bob entered the Air Corp and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and assigned as navigator on a B-17 Bomber. While training in Kansas, he met Sannie who would become his wife for over 70 years. Bob flew 13 missions from England to Germany. On his last mission his plane suffered severe flack damage, one crew member died, and Bob and others were wounded, causing them to crash land in Holland. The crew scattered in groups of two or three. Bob was assisted by a Dutch farmer and the Dutch Undergound as he tried to make his way south to Spain. He was eventually captured by the Gestapo, interrogated and imprisoned, and sent to a POW camp run by the Luftwaffe. This was the same camp made famous by the Great Escape movie. After being liberated by Patton's Third Army, Bob returned home to Cincinnati where Bob and Sannie raised a son and two daughters. He has been a member of St. Antoninus Church for over 70 years where he founded Boy Scout Troop 614. He is active in the St. X Alumni, several veteran's groups, and the Western Hills Retirement Activities program. His past birthday, March 21st, was proclaimed Bob Doolan Day in Cincinnati, with a plaque given to him by Chris Monzel, County Commissioner.
