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.

I have taken photos of probably more than 10,000 names in the Manila American Cemetery in the Philippines, but I do not have time to upload them. Anyone willing to volunteer to upload some of them is appreciated. If you would like to know some statistics about the cemetery, click on my photo I display here.

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.

Thank you so much for looking up my Uncle. It means a lot to me to know his name is listed so he will always be known. He passed much before I was born on the USS Quincy.
Happy Holidays

Oh My Goodness Tim!!! Thank you VERY MUCH!!!
When I placed my photo request I didn't expect anyone to take the photo of one name on the Wall of the Missing in Manilla in the Philippines.
Robert was, & still is, my 1st cousin 1x removed. Thank you Tim, I wish I could share these photos with the generation before me.

Hi Tim, Julian was my uncle on my fathers side. I would love to know where you found the information about the crash that killed him. I've done internet research to no avail. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Betsi
