the candy bomber brings more than candy
The story of the Candy Bomber is a wonderful tale of a simple act of human kindness having a lasting impact. Perfect for the holiday season, this story by Kip Tabb over on the North Beach Sun shares the history of an amazing man who wasn’t afraid to do the right thing.
“The Candy Bomber came back again to the Outer Banks, and the story behind its name tells an extraordinary tale of generosity of spirit and a simple act of kindness.
