Bio Photo My name is Michel Beckers and I live in Montfort, a small village in the South of The Netherlands.
I have been doing research regarding Aircrashes near my village in WWII for about 23 years.
I try to honor the men who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. My research has resulted in creating my own website.

Wishes, Michel

RE: Bradley E Learned
Hi Michel,

Thank you for your reply. Many of the family members have died, so my guess is that distant relatives put them up at an estate sale, and then someone bought them and placed them on ebay.

I myself have bought military items at auctions just because I think it's sad that no one remembers these veterans. But people die, and stuff gets dispersed.

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it.

Bradley E Learned
Good Morning,

Bradley E Learned is my grandfather's cousin. In fact, I just got through scanning family photos with him in them. I'm wondering. Where did you get his medals and picture? Thanks for your reply:-)

Thank You For The Tuskegee Airmen Memorial(s)

Michel...thank you very much for transferring to me Find A Grave Tuskegee Airmen Memorial - Quitman Walker 56356763

I will be placing clickable links in said Memorial which will inform persons who view it that there is a web page linked to said Memorial which lists names of Tuskegee Airmen who have passed away, and, now, continue to watch over,
and, protect the U.S.A. as Members of "THE KNIGHT SHIFT...Hoorah!!!

Tuskegee Airmen Virtual Cemetery

Tuskegee Airmen Virtual Cemetery Manager

Further, I seek to build a complete Tuskegee Airmen Cemetery (Pilots & Ground Personnel) which will eventually contain thousands of Tuskegee Airmen. Therefore, if you have, or, know of, additional Tuskegee Airmen, please also let me know about them and transfer them (also, let your family, friends & associates know about this).

Once again, thanks very very much for your assistance.

I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Michael James Morton

Thank you so much for posting the picture of his dog tags on the memorial page. I have to ask, how did you come across them? The family was told that he was flying a mission during WWII and didn't return. If you have any other details please share them with us. It was so hard on the family. He was an only child.

Thank you so much.

SSgt Louis DiMartino
Hello, I saw that at some point, you posted a photo of a crew on Louis DiMartino's memorial (#56357880), and I was wondering if you knew the identity of the other individuals in the photo. I tried to find the photo in the website that you sourced, but I couldn't track it down. The reason I ask is that I was hoping one of those individuals was 1st Lieut Harry M First, who was the navigator on the B-24 that they were shot down on. I also was interested in knowing the identities of the others in the photo.
I appreciate any help you can give,
Ron August

photo you added to 71933620
Thank you Michel for all the work you do to honor WWII veterans. You added an amazing photo to my uncle's memorial at

It shows my uncle Sgt John Lazoration with his flight team. I wonder where the photo came from?
May I add it to my uncle's information on my family tree?

Do you know the names of the others in the photo? If so, could you share them? I know that a few of them survived the training mission which killed my uncle.

Thank you so much!
