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.

Sgt John Haugen
you left a flower on the memorial for John Haugen 24855630 indicating the death date is incorrect. If you could provide me with official proof, I could order him a corrected marker. I am very familiar with ordering government issue military markers and have placed several in this cemetery for unmarked veterans. It would need to be some proof from the government. Send me an email --Thanks

Thanks for pointing this connection out. I'm touched to see people reuniting air crews who served, fought and died together in virtual cemeteries.

Best, Barry

RE: Sgt Kenneth W Seiler
Hey Tim,

I do have that ability .... and believe it or not I saw these two records previously.

Here's the problem:

If I merge your record into her record (since her record is the oldest) it "will not" move "anything" from your record's bio over to her record since her record already has a bio ..... It, in fact, will only delete your record. That's the way the merge works when both the old record and the new record have a bio .... which sucks basically.

Now I didn't do that when I saw them earlier since you had the crew report for them on yours ....

I'd suggest asking her for a transfer so that you can add the crew listing and after that deleting your record .....

Or I can just merge them and all your info will be lost .... Let me know what you'd like to do.

RE: John G. Donovan
I am well aware of the ranks of Lieutenant, but in speaking to one, people don't say first or second, they just say Lieutenant. Also, the headstones or marker's wording is at the behest of the family. My family chose to have 2nd Lt on my brother's headstone, but we could have easily just put Lt. and that would have been fine. Before we had this family headstone done, we had the one that the Army supplies, and it was our choice what was put on it.
