I saw you had posted some flowers on this memorial 7 years ago and thought you might be related - or at least interested - in Sgt. Gentry's history. Take a look at his memorial now and you can get an idea of what happened to him if you don't already know.

Captain William Gentry was commander of "The Dude" which was a B-24D Liberator Bomber based in the Phillipines. My father William R. Roedel was a ground crew chief on "The Dude". The nose art was painted by my father in tribute to William Gentry. He looked a lot like Clark Gable so my dad painted a top hat, cane and gloves on the plane. The plane was a two tour bomber until it was sent back to the states for a nose turret modification. William Gentry was killed flying a mercy mission in a Douglas SBD. My father always told me what a great pilot he was and how nice he was to the ground crew. He and my dad would do a trick where my father would route all the fuel from one wingtip tank to all four engines and then they would start them up. My dad was the only one in the unit who could do it, Gentry always got a big kick out of it.
I hope this helps your search.
