Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the
line of duty, in non-combat missions during the World War II era in service-related accidents.
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.

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 email.

If you choose to send an email regarding any memorial here, please be very specific who you are
referring to: Name, death year and cemetery name (if possible).

I am not related to anyone I have added here in the military category. I added all my ancestors nearly ten years ago.

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.

From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.

Linus Eugene Amberg
Linus Eugene Amberg, #113256770, was an aviation cadet who died in an aircraft accident 1/4 mile north of Bryan Air Force Base in Brazos County, Texas. Don't know where to look for him in your virtual cemeteries but thought you might want to add him if you don't have him.

Hi Tim Thanks for the info. How did you find the name of that cemetery? I spent a lot of time on that one and never came up with that name. Have a great day! Loren

RE: William H. DeFeyter
My pleasure!

He is buried next to Ethel and William G DeFeyter
and the dates look about right for them to be William H's parents. I couldn't find any definitive documentation as to his parents, but do you know anything about his parents?

Ethyl's Find A Grave # is 134914601.

Thanks!
Kathy

Dear Tim,
As I research and fill in the gravestones at the Union Cemetery at Grandin in Hunterdon County, NJ, I noticed that your memorial (102779564) for Lieut. Joseph P. Hulder, Jr. is a duplicate. As it is dated later than the original memorial, please be kind enough to delete it. Thank you for your efforts in adding information and memorials.

Tim,
Would you be interested in adding info on memorials at the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery & Memorial?
I took many pictures of the tablets of the missing and know I can not get them all posted. If interested please email me.
