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.

Hi Tim,
THANK YOU so much for quickly responding to my request for the photo of my Great Uncle's name on the memorial for the lost seaman of the USS Vincennes. My Great Aunt Carol will be so thrilled to see this of her older brother.
Again, your help is much appreciated.

Re William Beisel
Thank you for the picture at the cemetery listing William Beisel at the Manila American Cemetery.
Can you validate the picture for us. It appears that it is a listing of ALL servicemen not just the 35 in this specific action since it starts with all those listed in alpha and there are alot of names starting with "B"
My brother thought his father might have an actual head stone.

Tim,

I see that you have specialized in military burials but I also so see that you have Cooks: Hazel Anieias Cook and Otis Hiram Cook. Are Hazel and Otis your family? If so, I would like to correspond.

RE: Solon & Cecilia Short
Tim by chance did you take photos of those or remember their names I could check to see if they have memorials & have you add the photos.
