My dad was Warren Killion, he never talked to me about his life during WWII. He died before I had a chance to hear about this chapter of his life. If anyone remembers him and can share bits of his time in New Guinie, not only would I enjoy hearing but his grand children would also like to hear.
Thanks

I was a civilian internee (age 13) in Bilibid Prison, Manila in January, 1945. We saw a B-24 get shot down, and watched the crewman try to parachute to safety. Sadly, some didn't make it. I believe this plane was with a squadron based, since late December 1944 or early January 1945 on Mindoro Island. I would very much like to know what squadron this plane was from and, if possible, the names of the crew and what happened to them. This would let me share the story of what we saw with their families, a story that my dad wrote up in his memoirs "Sunrise to Sunrise".

Are you a World War 2 Veteran or know someone who is?
In 1998, I began my project of collecting stories from World War 2 veterans and their families for the purpose of preserving and documenting information for future generations to learn. I would like to talk to any World War 2 veterans who are interested in sharing their stories. I would greatly appreciate it. The histories that I have been collecting and compiling over the last 12 years, all this information has been donated to the General Patton Memorial Museum.

If you are interested in sharing your story, please contact me.

I am a former Marine infantryman, but my late father-in-law, Charley Farha, flew with "Ken's Men". He was a gunner/photographer. As I understand it he was on a B-24J. Would like to correspond with any members of the 43rd BG who might remember Charley. I am also a model builder and would like to build a replica of the B-24J "Ken's Men" if some other modeler can recommend a set of decals in 1/48 scale.
