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.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for taking the time to get this picture in the Philippines! He was a soldier I found a cenotaph for in New Hampshire recently, so it is good to have photos of both that & the Tablets of the Missing.
Thanks again :)

I can't thank you enough for such a kind act and wonderful pictures of James's resting place. James was lost at an early age and that loss gave ongoing income to my Great Grandmother a widow and Golf Star Mother raising 10 children alone. This memorial means a lot and thanks for your time as I am in Ohio and could not visit San Fran at this time. Best to you.
