Lorin D. McCleary
Hi Janie,
Your uncle Dale Knapp's pilot on May 11, 1944 was Lorin D. McCleary Jr. His son, Lorin D. McCleary III, would like to contact you. He is planning a trip to France, and hopes to arrange for a monument to the crew. You can reach him through his Find A Grave page:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=48060760
Or you can email me at pwebber@pcisys.net and I will forward his message. Thanks.

Janie,
Do you still have your father's crew photo, taken when Lt Doyle E. Simons was his pilot? If so, could you rescan it at high res, say 600 dpi, and email it to me?
Regards,
Paul

RE: Sgt Dale L. Knapp (1925-1944)
Janie,
Thanks for the additional info. I have added it to the page, and you as a source. Please let me know if I have all the birth years correct. Also, do you know Dale Knapp's middle name?
I have been in touch with Lorin McCleary III, son of Lorin McCleary Jr, who was Dale Knapp's pilot on May 11, 1944. I have added a page for Lorin McCleary Jr (Find A Grave memorial 3285144). It has a bit more information about the May 11 mission, and a crew roster.
I enjoyed reading the pages about your parents. Great photos, especially the one of Knapp's Cafe!
Regards,
Paul

Sgt Dale L. Knapp (1925-1944)
Hello,

During research for Sergeant Dale L. Knapp (Find A Grave Memorial 56373528), I found your page for his older brother, Hubert Leroy Knapp (Find A Grave Memorial 10163465). Can you confirm for me that Sgt Knapp was your uncle?

Thanks.

Regards,
Paul Webber
