Les Sellers hid with his buddy, the pilot of a downed aircraft, under a platform covered with manure for two days. A metal pipe with a wire strung through it ran from the hideout to some bushes. When Sellers, then 25, needed nourishment, he would signal by jiggling the wire and the family assisting him, members of the Dutch Underground, would send him a bottle of milk. Shirley Evans, 69, of Hagerstown, had known Sellers and his wife for about 25 years. But she'd never known of his travails during World War II until he began sharing a little during a Sunday school class in 2007.
