RE: Maj Beam
Thanks for the effort Madelane.
Evidently there is no memorial for Maj Beam.
Feel sure Gary Alan Beam with Find A Grave#117392445 was his son.
Am sending copy of accident report to your email.
Thanks again for your help

Additional info:
Ditching of RB-36H occured 4 aug 1953.
It is hard to read on old memeograph copy of casualty report,but Beam's wife appears to have been Garalene ,or Geralene Elizabeth Beam.
Also on report: Mrs M.M. Patrick, mother-in-law, Waco,Tx.
Mrs Gussie V Beam,mother,Seaford,Delaware.
Father deceased.

Gary Alan Beam
If you have means to contact Stuart Strout Woodside,I would like to know if he knows father of Gary Alan Beam Find A Grave#117392445,which he created.
Casualty report for Maj. Arthur P. Beam lists son by this name. Maj Beam'a address in 1953 at time of his death is Willow Brook ,Los Angeles County,Ca.
Maj Arthur P. Bean ,who was A/C Commander died in ditching of RB-36H Sr#52-1369 of 72 Strat Recon Sqdn in North Atlantic 500 mi west of Scotland. Of 23 in crew 4 survived 5 were confirmed dead and 14 missing and presumed dead.Maj Beam's body was never recovered.
I am attempting to find if grave or marker of some sort honors Maj. Beam. Have checked National Cemeteries and Find A Grave. So far NIL.
Am attempting to list all of crew on Find A Grave,if not already listed. I was in 72 SRS as radio/gunner. I knew Beam and most of his crew.
Any help appreciated.
