I have been conducting research on my father's period in the Army Air Force (he was killed in action in January 1945, over Yugoslavia). One of the most useful kinds of information I've found are photos of the context in which he lived and flew.
I have become very familiar with the very large (hundreds of thousands) photo collection in the National Archives in College Park, MD. I am willing to do photo research at a discounted price for AWON members and visitors about their father/relative. The chances of finding a photo of a specific person are limited. However, it is likely that some contextual photos can be found and scanned.
Contact me if I can be of help in finding photos that will be useful to you.
