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.

Would consider removing one photo from his memorial
#56129780 as it is at a maximum?
I have a photo I took of his grave marker at the island of Santos where the SS Coolidge sank. I was going over some older photos, from 2OO1, of our dive trip and saw the grave marker photo. I believe it is quite historical and would add historical value to his memorial.
You can let me know.
Thank you.

Mr Cook. You sent me information to add to this young TSGT memorial. I was shocked. He is in the Foster Cemetery Oklahoma where our family is also buried and lived in the area since the 1800's. My husband was on the other side of the fence that day the AWAC went down. The pilot missed The Ammo bunkers as if he knew the catastrophe that would take place if the plane went down in the ASP. He was and retired as an Explosive inspector for the US Army. Little did he know at the time someone from his community was on that plane until you sent me the message today.

Thank you so much for the photo of my grandmother. She was killed when my mother was 8 when a load of logs fell on her and her unborn child. I think I was named after her as her middle name is Caroline. Your photo means quite a lot to me. Carol Otto

Thanks Tim. Excellent work and a great example of what Find A Grave can be to preserve the lives of those who sacrificed the ultimate for America's future generations.
