RE: Stephen Golego # 72338294
Hello Domi,
You are very welcome for the photo. I just started this week as a photo request volunteer. I do not do any type of research. I'm sorry I will not be able to help you out with obtaining more information on Stephen Golego.
Best regards,
Peggy

Not a problem! If I ever do come across his designation in the Army, I will be sure to let you know.

John W. Doriss Jr - West Laurel Hill Cemetery - #91493619
Domi ---
I just filled a photo request for John W. Doriss #91493618. This is John Doriss Sr. The WW2 Vet you are looking for is buried in the same plot, at memorial #91493619. I have asked the memorial manager to move the obituary from Doriss Sr to Doriss Jr and correct the death date (Doriss Sr died in 1946). I posted photos to both memorials. Unfortunately, it is a large family plot and neither Doriss Sr nor Doriss Jr has a marker engraved with his name. There is a family marker on the plot.

I read your message on Cicero's page stating that you would like more info on him. Dianne Wood who manages his memorial can help with that as she lives in Coweta County. The Coweta County Historical society has the newspaper archives. Contact Dianne and she will help you.

This person does not have a headstone, so I am posting a photo of the exact location. The cemetery has no other information on him.

RE: Robert Cassidy
I was hoping.

He was a Glider pilot, and took part in one of the last big battles of WWII. I know nothing more than that, this is why I was hoping.

Thank you for honoring him. Very few people know about the role of glider pilots during the war.

RE: Englund, Wesley
No worries about the "to fast". I do it all the time. :)

Thank you for adopting as well as photographing the remembrances of our soldiers.

I don't know what unit he was with but he was in the Air Corp as I posted his military record when he enlisted/inducted on his site.

I doubt I will ever find his obituary and even if I did, most times they just say "served in WWII in the "Navy/Army/Air Force". Too bad one can't request their military records unless they are closely related.

Can you send me the picture you have of a Mr. Englund as maybe I can find him on Ancestry.

Best regards,

Andi

I appreciate your "mission" in requsting photos for veterans. I tihnk it's VERY important to remember those who have served in the military. Although this is not a family member of mine, I have requested a transfer so I can more easily make whatever updates are necessary.

Hi Dominique, I'm so very sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I haven't been on for quite awhile. I know my Dad had 104 jumps but when he did them I don't know. I remember when he would get a little liquid in him he would cry because he killed 16 men. I can't imagine what he must have been through. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING THIS MY DAD WOULD BE VERY PROUD!!
Sincerely,
Peggy :)

Dominique, here is a link for Charles O'Briant Bradsher which is a discharge document showing what he did in the service (he was not in the service very long because he was drafted late in the war. It is difficult to read, but not impossible. Hope this helps. He was a GLIDER PILOT in Central Forces overseas.

Here's another one. My husband knew Ivan and he talked frequently about being a glider pilot in WW II. Maybe you have a list of names you're working from.

Dean Estel Anthony, died March 2, 2012, at Hospice House in Pratt. He was born June 18, 1924, south of Zenda, to Lawrence and Audrey Anthony. He was the oldest of three children, Earl (Norma) Anthony and Lois Watts (deceased). At the time of his death, he attended the Pratt Church of Christ.
Dean Estel Anthony, died March 2, 2012, at Hospice House in Pratt. He was born June 18, 1924, south of Zenda, to Lawrence and Audrey Anthony. He was the oldest of three children, Earl (Norma) Anthony and Lois Watts (deceased). At the time of his death, he attended the Pratt Church of Christ.

He volunteered to serve his country in World War II, in the US Army Air Corps, as a glider pilot and as a pilot of pursuit planes. He served in the Graves Registration Detail before returning home as a 1st Lt.

Dean married his hometown sweetheart, Velma Leader in 1946. To this union was born four children: Patricia Horton (Vernon) deceased, Steven Anthony of Pretty Prairie, Gayl Lee of Great Bend, and Wade Anthony (Debbie) of Pratt. Thirteen grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren were added to the family.

Dean and Velma farmed northwest of Attica for several years, then moved to Attica and built a motel. Dean started in the trucking and grain merchandising business. The couple moved to the Pratt area in the 1970s and continued in the trucking and trailer manufacturing business until retiring to their farm.

He was always faithful to his church and will be missed by many family and friends.

Cremation has taken place through Heartland Mortuary in Preston. Memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Pratt Church of Christ, with Steve Triplett and John Hamm officiating. A private family inurnment will take place at the Attica Cemetery. Contributions may be made to South Wind Hospice or Prairie Sunset Resthome’s New Addition Fund.
