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.

Hi Tim. Sorry to show my name on your photo but I could not make the photo you had there to show - so I cheated. If you can fix it, please do. Thanks.

Flower with bio information...
I am not sure if you are aware or not, but flowers with bio information usually get deleted.

I was putting flowers on some of your memorials and noted that you were documenting details of accident for the pilots. That information should go in the bio section of the memorial....according the website guidelines.

Air Force Plane Crash 11-11-1944
Hi Tim,
I am researching the 9 US Air Force men who were killed in a plane crash at the base of Middle Mountain in Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham, NH. Specifically looking for any living relatives.
My daughter's Girl Scout Troop (in Nottingham, NH) has begun a project to erect a monument to these brave servicemen, at the site of the crash. I am a genealogist and will be teaching the girls how to research and hopefully contact, the airmen's families, for their project.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

What you are doing on find-a-grave is very honorable and you should be very proud of your efforts!
