|Bio and Links|
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.

|Anita K||crash at Tyndall air base|
Hi there. Thanks for the link to the other soldiers killed in the crash. Abre you related to one of them?
Last summer I found the now-unclassified report on the incident. It's tragic. If you're interested in receiving it, please just let me know your email address.

Thank you very much for the photo!
Is this on a wall?
Would you happen to have a pulled back shot?

|Rick Foster||Loveman update|
Thanks for the Update for Lt. Loveman in Mayfield Cemetery. Which wars are you researching? I have lots of all war veterans that I have photographed that could use details. And a few memorials not yet created from photos. As I create a memorial and or find them do you want me to send you the #?
|Cadie Hockenbary||Robert Brown|
I will transfer the memorial for you to add the information, but as promised, I expect you'll transfer it back to me.

|Russ Pickett||Hey Tim ....|
Did you have something else on this one? I can't find anything on who he was with ...
|Janet Emmons Pringle||Charles Blanchard FFC|
Hi Ti, thank you for the photo. My uncle was killed on the USS Quincy during Battle of Savo island. I have letters written by survivors of the attach describing the scene. I hope there is stone for him there. If I find there isn't, I will have one place here. He was 18. The letters tell me that the order was given to abandon ship but communications were out. He was last seen heading to the boiler room to tell his shipmates to abandon when a torpedo hit. He did not resurface.
