|Bio and Links|
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 for all the hard work you have done in adding our service men who have died during and after the war. I salute to you and our brave service men.
God Bless You,

I love that you are remembering these heroes. I have a relative, Matthew McCroddan FAG110990716 who fits that list. Hit died while testing planes at a base in Washington. Thank you for what you are doing.

Hi, Tim! I was so excited to see memorials for several of my ancestors with information that was able to further my research after I'd been stuck for some time. Thank you so much for putting them up!
I wanted to ask, on Memorial #18820209, how did you know the baby was a girl? I assume you had cemetery records or something?

Thank you for the nice photo of Almeda's marker and husband Ed's.
Also, thank you for documenting and honoring the thousands of airmen who died in aircraft accidents in OONUS during WWII. I recently honored (with a note and their national flag) WWII RAF/RCAF airmen buried in a small church cemetery in Lincolnshire, England. Many were killed in training accidents. The note:
Nor shall your glory be forgot; While Fame her record keeps, Or Honor points the hallowed spot; Where Valor proudly sleeps. (From The Bivouac of the Dead by Theodore O'Hara, 1820-1867.)
John Gillespie Magee, Jr, the author of High Flight, is buried there.
