Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the
line of duty, in non-combat missions during the World War II era in service-related accidents.
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.

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 email.

If you choose to send an email regarding any memorial here, please be very specific who you are
referring to: Name, death year and cemetery name (if possible).

I am not related to anyone I have added here in the military category. I added all my ancestors nearly ten years ago.

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.

From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.

Tim I found what I could and added that but found no Newspaper articles. Gordon Nebraska is located a long ways from the large city newspapers and doesn't seem to get much press. I think Gordon is near the South Dakota border. Gordon's claim to fame or non fame now is its a small town that has a bar / liquor store that sells like millions of cans of beer or Liquor each year. Across the border is the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Loren

Hi!!
Thank you for your note. I know the grave is unmarked and had asked, in my note, for a photo of the general area of Sarah's final resting place. I had included the names on the adjacent headstones to assist in the location of the grave.

Should you return to the cemetery I should greatly appreciate you fulfilling the photo request.

Thank you again for your kindness.
Yvonne
