Some Volusia County students have formed a connection with the famous WWII 'Candy Bomber.' Retired Col. Gail S. Halvorsen, known commonly as the Berlin 'Candy Bomber,' dropped candy bars attached to parachutes made from handkerchiefs to German children watching the airlift operations from outside the fence of the Tempelhof Airport in West Berlin.
