My Grandfather, Kevin McCracken, was in Port Moresby serving as a waist gunner and radio operator on B17's and B24's, 43rd BG - 64th squadron. He named and painted the nose art on their new B24 - the Microbe-Hunter, but it was then assigned to another crew and crashed on take-off killing all aboard. Some of his crew members were Cptn Ross (Pilot), Lt. Masters (Copilot), Kurdilla, Hayes, and Pappert. My grandfather passed away a few years ago. If anyone has any remembrances of him or info they could share regarding the crew, the Microbe-Hunter or other planes he flew, please send me an email. Thanks!

My Dad was stationed in Port Moresby with the 63rd. Master Seargent Alden (Harky) Harclerode. He passed away in September 1998. Just wondering if anyone knew him and had a story the would like to share. I also have his scrap book of photos from there. Unfortunately there are no names.

Would be nice if there was an e-mail / postal contact on the web site.

Humor: Know whay the 5th was in the South Pacific and the 8th was in Europe? They did not have enough people to fill in the gaps for the 5th.

Love the site. I came across it while searching for photos of Ie Shima for a book i'm writing. Great pics of an overlooked site of WWII! I hope you don't mind if i use a photo of the typhoon aftermath. It will appear in the Columbia restaurant's centennial history and cookbook. How should i cite it? are the personal photos or the DoD?
