One of 12 airmen killed in the crash of their B-24D bomber in the South Pacific. Due to the nature of the recovery of the remains, several burials in different locations were afforded a number of the airmen, as well as a common burial in a single casket in Arlington National Cemetery. People are urged to search Find-a-Grave for the other, separate burials.

Airmen lost in the crash of B-24D 42-40918, "Shack Rat," of the 5th Air Force, 90th Bombardment Group, 320th Bombardment Squadron, were:

1st Lt. Jack E. Volz
