Sixth Castle Coombe mess cup comes home

Eighth Air Force consultation committee luncheon members toast on Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Sept 15, 2014. The cup used in the toast is one of nine that was used to toast in 1943, when eight officers stood with World War II Gen. Ira Eaker, in England?s Castle Coombe. The officers raised a toast in silver cups in hopes of victory and would continue reuniting after victory was achieved. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Kristin High)
