Birth: unknown
Death: Oct. 16, 1943

1Lt Norman F. Benesch was a crewmember of B-25 medium bomber, tailnumber 41-29684. The plane and crew belonged to the 434th Bomb Squadron, 12th Bomb Group. On 16 October 1943 the plane crashed into the east slope of Mount Etna, near Catania Sicily. All crewmembers were killed in the crash. All men were buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily.
Lt Benesch was buried in grave I-93-1113. Date of burial was 19 October 1943.

After the war Lt Benesch found his last resting place in grave J-14-39 of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery. I am writing a book about this cemetery and hope to finish it next year (2013). 
Note: Entered the service from Wisconsin.
