StoryCorps in KC: Jeanie Schiefelbusch and Richard Schiefelbusch
By Laura Spencer
Kansas City, MO – At StoryCorps recording booths across the country, friends and loved ones interview each other about their lives. Each Tuesday during Morning Edition, we'll bring you a story from the MobileBooth in Kansas City.
Jeanie Schiefelbusch brought her father, Richard "Dick" Schiefelbusch, to talk his experiences in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Schiefelbusch was a navigator on a B-24 bomber; when his plane was hit over the Baltic Sea, he parachuted out. Schiefelbusch was rescued by a German fishing boat and spent two years as a POW.
StoryCorps MobileBooth was stationed at 63rd Street and Brookside Boulevard, September 9, 2010 to October 2, 2010. StoryCorps in Kansas City is sponsored by Mid-Continent Public Library.
