Pvt. Floyd H. Maynard, MIA/KIA
Hometown: Springvale, Pennsylvania
Squadron: 66th BS 44th BG Ground Personnel
Service #13028712
Awards:
Killed in fight 28 April 1944
Sgt. Maynard was with the ground echelon that went overseas to England in early September 1942 on board the HMS Queen Mary. Apparently, he had Air Gunner training so he flew four combat missions between 6 December 1942 to March 13, 1943. Following that assignment, he again was assigned to activities on the ground.
On 28 April 1944, at 2345 hours, Pvt. Maynard lost his life. Investigation as to the cause of his death eventually disclosed that an unidentified 392nd BG man was involved in an argument and attempted to hit another man with a large piece of wood. Unfortunately, his aim was bad and he accidentally hit Sgt. Maynard on the head, fractured his skull, and death was almost immediate.
