Looking for any information on William M. Short. He was in the Army Air Corp during WWII. For a time he was stationed in Biloxi, Ms. Then he went to England. His 2nd cousin said he was killed in the war. He is my brother's father. The service # we gave the VA matched his cousin's with the same Name and Birth date except the year was 10 years later. My brother has tried to get information on his Dad for years. (For my Brother)
Thank You, Bob Anderson (Short)

I am trying to verify that my navigator, a
Paul Stephens, is buried in The Ardennes
American Cemetary, Neupre, Belgium.
He was MIA on a mission March 15, 1945, but
later listed as KIA near Ruhland, Germany.
F/O Stephens was originally from Cincinnati,
Ohio, and I believe he was the only child of
Charles and Sofia Stephens.

William Henry Foster, Jr.
29DEC16 - 26NOV43
Wm was stationed at EglinAirBase, Florida and was in one of the training crews that instructed the Doolittle Raiders on the B-25. Although I have not been able to determine with any certainty, he is presumed to be a victim of Sinking of the HMT Rohna transport in the mediterranean. His name does not show up on the victims list on the Rohna web site. He was returned and buried at the Rock Island Nat'l Military Cemetery in 1949 - this is where i obtained the service number shown here.

I am trying to locate information on my biological father who was a corporal and a tailgunner. He was killed in action in Germany sometime between May 1945 and Oct. 1945. I don't have his name, as my biological mother put me out for adoption when she learned of his death, which occurred before my birth in January 1946. It is believed he may have met her at Stewart Air Force Base in New York State, prior to receiving orders for the 15th Air Force in Bari, Italy. At the time of his death, my father was 25. I have a photo of a serviceman whom I believe is my father, but there is no identifying information on the picture..... only a patch on his left sleeve which is not very distinguishable, although it is possible his last name was Lewis. If anyone can give me additional info as to where I could search, it would be appreciated. You may contact me privately at email@example.com.

An excellent resource for Army Air Force information can be found at the website www.armyairforces.com There are databases there where you can look up information, and a message board that is frequented by veterans and AAF enthusiasts that can answer just about any question you might have.
