Hello Mr. Dowdy,
I'm busy with his Bio and he has 2 Find a Grave Files.
On one first (yours) there is a lot of info about D-Day, so i'm a bit confused.

RE: salvatore sica
Hi John, yes, I'll try to remember to get Salvatore's photo medallion next time I'm there. Must have been a senior moment, forgetting to save his when I was there.

Visited the Gairloch, Scotland crash site of June 13th, 1945. Your article is very informative. I do remember as a child hearing members of my family discussing the secret missions of my Uncle and reasons why the various governments may not have wanted those members coming home. Sad if it is true.
