All of you seem to know so much about WW11 so wanted to ask for help.
I am looking for a U.S. Naval Reserve Fireman 1st Class that died on Aug. 10, 1945 and was listed as missing in action or buried at sea.
We were told he died in an airplane. How do I find what type of aircraft he was in?
He is Memorialized in Honolulu, Hawaii and at the WW11 Memorial Washington D.C. - Name Earnest T. Flanders
I would also like to have a picture of the airplane he was in when he was killed, so where would I find that?
I don't know much about the Navy but would a Fireman be in an airplane instead of a ship?
In doing genealogy, I had read lots on the Civil War, but not much on WW11 so found this site very, very interesting. You guys are very detailed in your comments!
I did have to skip some of the pages with the racy pictures, as they made me blush!
Thanks for your kind help,
