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.

T/Sergeant Jacob M. Hauber Jr
T/Sergeant Jacob M. Hauber Jr was on board of a bomber from the 96th Bomb Squadron, 2nd Bomb Group. His plane participated in a bombing raid over Sicily on 14 July 1943. The plane never returned to her base. No remains were ever found. Sergeant Hauber Jr is listed on the Walls of Missing of the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

You took a picture of his cenotaph. I would like to ask your permission to use that picture for my project about the temporary American GELA Cemetery in Sicily, where over 1,200 men and women were buried between July 1943 and April 1947. If his remains would have been found, he would have been buried at Gela.

I have my project available on a DVD, titled "They stayed behind".

Of course you will be credited

Information for the edit request comes from the WWII Army Enlistment Records and Highland Cemetery Records. I can look up the obituary if you would like.
