Geocache Description:

Сергей Иванович Грицевец (1909 — 1939), первый дважды Герой Советского Союза (февраль и август 1939 г.), майор, летчик-истребитель. Участвовал в национально-революционной войне в Испании в 1936 −1938 гг., на р. Халхин-Гол в войне с японцами в 1939 г. В Испании в 1936 году сбил 30 фашистских самолетов, причем 7 из них в один день. Всего на его счету 40 сбитых самолетов противника. За отвагу ему присвоили звание Героя Советского Союза. Вторую Золотую Звезду Героя С.И. Грицевец заслужил в боях в районе реки Халхин-Гол. Во время одного из боев, когда командир соединения вынужден был выброситься с парашютом из загоревшегося подбитого самолета на территорию противника, Грицевец приземлился рядом, взял раненого командира в свой одноместный самолет и на глазах у врага поднялся в воздух.

Погиб в сентябре 1939 года при исполнении служебных обязанностей у деревни Болбасово Оршанского района Витебской области.

В 1952 г. его именем была названа улица, а в 1955 г. установлен памятник (скульптор З.И. Азгур, архитекторы Г.В. Сысоев, С.С. Мусинский). Первоначально памятник был установлен в нынешнем парке им. Я. Купалы, затем, спустя 17 лет, его перенесли на бульвар по ул. Ленина, где он находится и поныне.
