|Bio and Links|
I live in Lodi, California.|
I am researching some of the 36,000-plus
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.

|Russ Pickett||RE: Maryland.....|
Thanks for the kind words on my research .... however what you are doing is incredible as well and I always look forward to one of your emails providing detailed information!!
This Friday (December 6th) is my last day of work. That's right, I'm retiring. I've worked long enough. LOL
Much of my time will now be searching cemeteries and working on Find A Grave .... I live in Delaware and if you decide to come to the East Coast hopefully we can plan to meet somewhere.
Not sure why the cemeteries are giving you trouble ... I guess they are just trying to be nice and helpful .... not realizing that it's a little hard to stop by when you are in CA.
Like you, I also enjoy finding things on my own. It's a mystery to me as well .... believe it or not I know where some of the Delaware guys (WW II and Vietnam era) are interred but show up as "unknown" on my website .... but since I know I'm retiring I want to go find them and take the photos myself!! LOL I'm looking forward to it!
Have a great day my friend and please let me know if you come east.... :-)

Tim, Thanks so much for info on above site. It has been posted. I have another veteran where final resting place has not been confirmed--Joe Phelan #53685404. Information has been very hard to secure on this veteran. Any help greatly appreciated. Richard
As of today I've completed the listing of all the soldier's and sailor's records I could find for the State of Maryland. Now to move on to another state.... :-)
Just wanted to let you know and also let you know how much I've appreciated all that you've helped me with. :-)

Sorry for the previous message - Hit the wrong key
Thank you for the information for Lt DeVos
As a result of your information I was able to find an article with his photo that was published in the Pittsburgh Press. I have attached the
article to his memorial.
|Diane Payne||Bertrand Sheridan|
Thanks for sending the information. I have updated the contribution.
|Stella L. Obeshaw||Solldier Quay|
Anything for a soldier, Tim.
Don't worry about transferring him back. If you connect with any of his family, I would appreciate you giving his memorial to them.
Thanks for persuading his military history.
