Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the
line of duty, in non-combat missions during the World War II era in service-related accidents.
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.

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 email.

If you choose to send an email regarding any memorial here, please be very specific who you are
referring to: Name, death year and cemetery name (if possible).

I am not related to anyone I have added here in the military category. I added all my ancestors nearly ten years ago.

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.

From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.

Victor Lee Graves correction request
Thank you for your contribution.
In your information for Victor (memorial 48397365) & his tragic demise you mentioned a "a owed glider". Is that correct or has a typo occurred? I certainly wouldn't know about military jargon. :

RE: Lieut. Frank W. Gardner--Shannon Rose Hill
You are quite welcome on the picture.
I read your Bio and have seen some of your work.
Thank you very much for the work you do in recognizing these downed flyers.

I see that you have concentrated on the Army Air Corps. If you ever find the time, you might want to research the Fleet Air Wing 7 of the US Navy. They flew out of Labrador in 1943 and from Dunkeswell, England from 1943-1945. As I understand it, they were the only land based Naval air unit in England.

Please let me know if you are interested.
