Not sure if any interest, but the top U.S. Navy fighter ace of WW2 Alex Vraciu , was a 2nd generation Romanian immigrant, just passed. Amazing story of heroism and grit.

Thank you for this information, and the second link is interesting.

There is a topic named "Obituaries", in this website, for this kind of news.
