MOSCOW — Seventy-three years after his bomber was shot down over East Germany, Staff Sgt. Charles H. Daman has come home. It was the spring of 1945 when 21-year-old Daman, a Plummer High School graduate, was killed in action after he and the crew of his B-24M Liberator were shot down over a field just north of Wittenberg, Germany.
