RE: Lawrence E Woodruff
Hi, thanks for writing. I wish you had a picture of my Lawrence E., but sadly it's not him. Uncle Gene was not in the service, he was a farmer (and quite a good one) in a very fertile wheat growing area during the war so was exempt and believed that he was performing an important service.

I hope you find the right Lawrence. In fact, I was surprised at how many there are listed on Find A Grave, who knew?
Sincerely, Pat

Lt. James H.S. Lynch
First, thank you for much for all the work you have done!

Lt. Lynch was my uncle. My father, Jack Lynch, who also served in WW II, was his only brother. Both my brother and grandson are named after James. We have his photo in full pilot uniform and a letter from his fellow flyers who witnessed the loss of his plane at sea.

Please direct me to your source for the information beneath the photo you provided of his plane "Happy". I have been working like crazy to find more information on Lt. Lynch but, apparently, you're way ahead of me!

Again, many thanks for your time and efforts.

LSgt Joseph F Kolb

Joseph Kolb was my grandmother Rose's first husband. They were married in August 1943. My grandmother is still alive, and recently discovered that the story she was told about Joe's death was different from the story she got from the government. One story says his plane was destroyed because of a planted bomb that went off in mid flight, and the other story says that the plane developed engine trouble and crashed into, I believe, the Tyrol Mountains. My grandmother received his signet ring three years later, but not his wedding ring. Is there any way I can find out what the true manner of his death was? My grandmother would like to know before she joins him and my grandfather in heaven...Thank you!

RE: TSgt Cyril Edward Curb
Thanks "patootie", for your reply. I have since found out a lot of information on the Curb family. His memorial should shortly be linked to that of his mother and siblings, along with an explanation that he is on the "Tablet of the Missing". Best Wishes and thanks for remembering one of our fallen warriors.

TSgt Cyril Edward Curb
Hello "patootie"; First of all, let me extend a hearty Thank You for all you are doing in adding to the memorials of our fallen warriors. Next, the above listed person is listed on Find-A-Grave with two separate memorials (Find A Grave# 56288946 and Find A Grave# 33274627). The first, #56288946, indicates he is buried at Cambridge American Cemetery, Cambridge, England. The second, #33274627, indicates he is buried at Evergreen Cemetery Gemmell, Minnesota.

I believe that TSgt Cyril Curb is actually buried in England and that the stone in Gemmell is a memorial type stone. There are photo requests submitted for both locations which may throw some light on this mystery. I see that you left a note on the memorial for this fallen warrior and was wondering if you had some thoughts on this. Best Wishes.

Theodore R. Anderson
Hello Daniel,
I'm wondering if you have access to any WWII picture/pictures of 1st Lt. Theodore R. Anderson, who served in Patton's 3rd Army, 87th Infantry Division? Theodore was awarded a Bronze Star for heroism. Theodore's Find A Grave number is 87789566. I have been most appreciative in the past for your very kind help in finding and posting pictures of our WWII veteran's.
Once again, many thanks!
