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.

Tresner photos - Thanks!
Thanks for taking the photos of the Tresner grave Tim. Took me forever to find the obits. And living in Texas, not sure I would ever get up there to take a pic.
Thanks again!

Please disregard the photo request. Sorry, I didn't realize it wasn't your memorial.

Tim,

Thank you so much for the photo of Vestus Warren's grave. He is my biological (I'm adopted) great, great grandfather. I very much appreciate it!

Thanks again.

Greetings Tim,

Thank you for the photo.

A portion of the right side of the marker got cut out of the photo. Would it be possible to get a retake with the marker in the center of the photo so that all of the marker shows in the photo. I would also like the photo e-mailed to me for higher resolution. I know this is asking for a lot, but I would like to put a photo with the marker in the center of the photo in my genealogy files (with your permission) for my kids, grandkids and great-grandkids to have when I am gone. It is very important to me.

I appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you soon.

Have a great day!
