Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching some of the 36,000 + Army Air Forces personnel who died in the line of duty, of non-combat causes during the World War II era in service-related accidents. It is said that more
than 15,500 Army airmen were killed in airplane accidents between 1941 and 1946, within the borders of the U.S. and it's territories. They gave their all and died in the service of their country, but received no purple hearts and virtually no mention in the history books and have largely been forgotten by time.

For corrections, additions, or requests for transfer of memorial, please use the Edit tab, and select Suggest a Correction or Provide Additional Information to make any update requests. It is much easier to handle the issue this way, rather than a personal message.

I am happy to update any memorial, including family links. But I DO NOT like adding census information, copies of death certificates and please do not add long obituaries to the "photo" area. The information can be condensed and pasted into the bio area. If you don't have the time to type out the obituary, just email it to me. I will add it and give you credit for finding it.
I appreciate any information that can "round out" someone's bio.

Thank you very much Tim for taking the time to fulfill my request. I understand of the time involved to get this done, and it is greatly appreciated. Especially since this memorial is another country! I will continue the act of kindness you showed me, by passing it on to another.

Sgt Ruben Lopez Rocha
Hi Tim,
Thank you very much. Did a quick search of Sgt Rocha and lived in the very small town of Stairtown, TX about 15 miles where I live before his family moved to Agua Dulce, TX.
Thank you,
