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.

Thank You for the correction, and
it has been made. We lost so many
young men in these training accidents;
the newspapers hardly kept up when the
names were released. I, for one
sincerely appreciate you letting me
know! Thanks for all you do at
Find A Grave! God Bless. Patti

Hi, Tim - Thank you for creating this memorial for my cousin James Vernon LAND. I am still working on what became of his mother. I found her parents (Mem. #34183329 & #34183330) and a sister. James' father was my dad's uncle Miller LAND, but he moved away from Georgia and Dad didn't know much about Miller's family. I will let you know if I can find Rubye. Thanks again - John

Edwin Riley Johnson
The Edwin Riley Johnson In Forest Lawn West is a small child that was born March 7 1946 and died May 12 1948. He was the son of William P Johnson and Edna Wingate Johnson According to the marker I took a picture of. This marker is in the location you gave for your request online. I don't think this is the one you are looking for.

Hello there. I sent you a few edits. The dates and information you provided in the memorial matched the marker that I photographed so I'm quite certain it's the same person. I will add a photo for you to see the middle name on the marker. I've also sent edits to link him to his parents and I've sent plot information as well.

Cheers my fellow Findagraver! Keep up the great work! :)
