I went to the same high school as Charles Brown. He was 8 years older than me but I'm, sure my older brothers knew him. A great honor to know he was from Weston, WV. We had other heroes from Weston in WW2.

I hope more stories like this one are published and affect others like it has for me. Courageous acts of compassion need to be retold until 'we' raise our consciousness to learn to work together rather than harm each other.
Thank you for posting !

I just had to send my condolences to the Brown family after reading about Chales Browns' experiences during and after WW2. A true hero who lived a remarkable life. His connection with Franz Stigler was just extrodinary. The story of two pilots on opposites sides of World War 2 coming face to face over worn torn Germany only to be reunited years later was simply fascinating. I wish I had of met Mr Brown before his passing. God bless him and his family

I was sent an email regarding the story of Your beloved Father and his special Brother Franz. I was so touched I decided to look up more information regarding what had happened on that fateful day. Absolutely inspiring Vale to both your Dad Charles and Franz may they both still be telling their story forever in Heaven.

Thank you for your service, your many contributions to society, and of course, many thanks for sharing the touching story about the incident and friendship with Franz Stigler. RIP Sir.

Charles and Franz were two men who demonstrated nobody wants war. Charles later discovered keys to prove nobody needs war. I was familiar with "A Higher Call" but in discovering how Charles Brown went to Congress, met a Senator in the Science & Technology committee, and met the General Counsel where he proved he could improve gas mileage, and lower emissions by 40%. Instead of thanking him, Charles test vehicle was stolen, his equipment and notes taken. His project at the Maritime Administration also proved too successful, and was cancelled. This is all outlined in the book, UNACKNOWLEDGED, published in May 2017 by Dr. S.M. Greer. As a tribute to you, Charles, and your friend Franz, whose selfless act gave you and your men 60 more years to live & invent things to bless our world, I give thanks. To all men like you, I hope everyone searching for truth will read UNACKNOWLEDGED, especially pages 70 to 73 which tell your story after the war. Every American, every German, and every human being on this planet needs to know the truth, so your children and your children's, children's children will have an earth to inherit one day. Thank you for your service, and your example. May your family be forever blessed.
My father also served, in Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Midway, the Solomon Islands and Korea. I include his photo in tribute, and with thankfulness to all who serve.

I heard this story from my grandfather in 2002. He also served in the Jagdgeschwader 27. the two have known each other. Franz did not tell the incident at the time. Long after the war one could talk about it. My grandfather told me about Franz and Charlie. It was beautiful and sad at the same time. Nice that there were pilots like franz who also acted humanly. And sad that many good men have fallen into a senseless war. Since 2002 I have seen many news and features on the II WW. It shocked me. What happened there was terrible. With YouTube came the videos of the guncam or cameras on board of tanks and aircraft. I find it infinitely sad how many men had to die there. on both sides. I would like to undo everything but I can not. I was even a soldier in the German Bundeswehr but never had to go to war. Luckily. I never want to experience such a thing. But I would like to express my greatest respect and gratitude to the soldiers who liberated Germany and Europe in 1945. Thanks to the soldiers who had to die. And thank you to pilots like franz to place humanity for hostility. Words can not tell how grateful I am to the soldiers of WW II who have finished the war. I salute before them with my greatest respect. You can write to me. Am always interested in stories of soldiers from the war period. Photos, diaries or anything. Everything is treated anonymously. I do not publish anything. I just want to know a lot from the time. Rip Franz and Charlie. You showed that enemies can become friends. I live in address for contact: [email protected]
