Lt. Col. (Ret) Sheldon Kirsner, died May 28, 2009 at the age 91. Son of the late Colonel Harry and the late Evelyn Kirsner; widower of Mary Jane; brother to Harriett Melitz and two other younger sisters; father of Wayne and Georgia Kirsner. Sheldon graduated from Missouri Military Academy in Mexico, Missouri and in 1937, at the age of 18, enlisted in the Army infantry as a private. Within a year he passed the tests to be inducted into the US Military Academy at West Point where he developed a life-long passion for the Corps and its creed of Duty, Honor, Country. He transferred to Washington University in his sophomore year where he received his bachelor’s degree in 1942 and then was shipped out to Europe as a B-17 Command Pilot in the Army Air Corps. Flying out of Podington Station in England in the spring and summer of 1944, he was credited with 35 missions over France and Germany, receiving the Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters and the Distinguished Flying Cross for bringing his shot-up plane back on two of four engines after leading his group on the raid on Germany’s Peenemunde Rocket Works. The heart that eventually gave out was saved that day from a chard of shrapnel which lodged in the chest of his flak suit. His aircraft wasn’t so lucky as it was perforated by 150 punctures. He returned from the War as a Captain. He spent the rest of his career as first a pilot instructor, then a Base Civil Engineer in the Air Force. Retiring from the service after 28 years in such varied climes as Korea, Turkey, Goose Bay Canada, and Homestead, Florida, he returned to St. Louis to work as an executive with Switzer’s Licorice on Laclede’s Landing for 10 years. He was an avid collector, amassing one of the biggest collections of military insignia in the United States. His collection was donated last year to the St. Louis County Parks Commission Museum at Jefferson Barracks along with his model train collection which is periodically put on display Jane Contributions to the Disabled Veterans National Foundation.
