FltO Curtis Charles Mosier
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 17, 1919
Death: Feb. 25, 1944

Lt Mosier was raised in northern New York. His father was killed while working as an engineer on the Great Lakes shortly before Curtis was born. He attended school in Ogdensburg and later obtained a job with the Curtiss-Wright factory in Buffalo NY.

He took part in extensive training for the Army Air Forces and received his wings and a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant. After a brief period spent at the Advanced Flying School at Stockton Field, California, he was sent to England as a heavy bomber pilot in the Eighth Army Air Force. Shortly before his death, he wrote home that he had completed his 17th mission and he said he looked forward hopefully to completing 25 missions after which he expected a furlough home.

On February 25, 1944 Lt. Mosier took part in a massive offensive mounted by planes from England and Italy, with the primary target being the Messerschmitt factory at Regensburg. He was killed when the B-17 he was piloting was shot down over Germany.

A memorial service was held for him in his home of Ogdensburg NY in June of 1944. A cenotaph was put in place in the cemetery where his father was buried, while his remains were returned to England for burial.
