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 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

RE: Memorial# 19434553
The following information is from cemetery records. You don't have to change the name if you don't want to. That will be no problem.

Cook J.M. (Jesse Madison) 1 4C 29 8/31/1842 10/8/1914

The new marker that I added in for the person buried in Block 1, Row 4C, Grave 29.

It's up to you what you would like to do.
