Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the line of duty, of non-combat causes during the World War II era in service-related accidents. It is said that more
than 15,500 Army airmen were killed in airplane accidents between 1941 and 1946, within the borders of the U.S. and it's territories. They gave their all and died in the service of their country, but received no purple hearts and virtually no mention in the history books and have largely been forgotten by time.

For corrections, additions, or requests for transfer of memorial, please use the Edit tab, and select Suggest a Correction or Provide Additional Information to make any update requests. It is much easier to handle the issue this way, rather than a personal message.

I am happy to update any memorial, including family links. But I DO NOT like adding census information, copies of death certificates and please do not add long obituaries to the "photo" area. The information can be condensed and pasted into the bio area. If you don't have the time to type out the obituary, just email it to me. I will add it and give you credit for finding it.
I appreciate any information that can "round out" someone's bio.

Yakima Plane Crash, March 27,1945
Hi Tim. Thank you for all of the work you have done to help so many people. I am hoping you have some information that would assist my family.

My great uncle, Lt. Philip M. Rooney died in a plane crash in Yakima while towing a target with Henry Skaggs Jr. You posted information on this website about them, which is so far the only information our family has. Do you know any additional information or where I can find more information?

Thanks so much!

Marie

Walter Schlekau
Hello, I was wondering what kind of photo you were requesting for Walter Schlekau at San Joaquin National as there is already a grave marker photo of him. Would like to assist any way I can. Thanks. Vern Hixson

Wendell Seppich Mem#119968408
Tim - Thank you so much for your submissions on find a grave and your dedication to our veterans! I am especially interested in Wendell Seppich because he was my aunt's first real love. You can see her bio and info on Find A Grave Mem #117840739. She told me about how she met him and how she fell in love with him and how she was informed of his death. Because you have made a memorial for him I am able to put some little pieces together. Thank you. She is Memorial #117840739
