The Juneau World Affairs Council presents “Three minutes over Germany: Smilin’ Thru” with Tony Yorba. Yorba recently traveled to Germany and retraced the final fateful minutes of his father’s Oct. 14,1943, B-17 mission over the Bavarian industrial city Schweinfurt aboard the bomber Smilin’ Thru. Allied casualties during the operation were exceptionally high.
Tony is the son of a California rancher who moved to Juneau in 1983 to take a job with Ackley Jensen Architects, now Jensen Yorba Lott, Inc., where he continues to work.
