I adopted his grave to thank him because he gafe his life for my freedom Still hope to find family of him in Texas, but it's hard to finf them because of privacy rules in the US.
I want to let them know he's still in good hands after so many years

Loretta Byrne Schumacher

I never knew this infomration about my Uncle Howard Elliot Byrne, co-pilot of the B-17G "Little Boots" 42-31193 615th Mission #17, 29 January 1944, Target: Frankfurt.
That he was shot down and was a POW along with 4 others. 5 other men died in the mission.
Thank you so much for providing the document and the interviews.
I ran into my uncle's dog tag and camp internment record/photo in family belongings when the last of those living in my Missouri family died.
I'm going to enjoy reading the other messages left here.

Elaine Robinson Adler

What a wonderful website!!!!
My father's cousin Glenn Van Syckle was the pilot in the plane.
Growing up in New Jersey, we always had a yellowed, tiny newspaper clipping in our strong box announcing he had been taken a prisoner of war.
I never knew the entire story and became curious.
How terrific when I googled his name and this sight came up.
I will share it with other family members including my daughter who is a navy LT.

judith wenger

thank you for this information.
lt. john wenger the bombadier on 'nobody's baby,' was my uncle.
My family was unable to find out much information about him.
The records facility where his records were kept burned in the 1960s.
I appreciate this site and information and intend to visit the wall of the missing on a future trip to europe.

all the best, judith

Ann Boskovich

My Uncle was Lucas Harry Sprinker, navigator of the B-17G 'Flak Rat' that was shot down in France 31 December, 1943.
He passed away October, 20, 1978.
He would rarely speak of his POW days.
I know he fractured his leg badly, and that is why he was a POW in Stalag LuftI.
I saw that most of the crew this was their first mission.
Was it the first mission for my uncle Luke?

Thanks. Ann Boskovich Seattle

Mark Scanlon

My father, Wm. M. (Bud) Scanlon served as bombardier in the 401st BG, 613th and 615 BS completing 30 missions with the Shackleford, Keeling, Garton and Speer crews from Aug 44-Apr 45.
Any info on him and his crews is appreciated.
I'm searching especially for any details on Mission 191, 5 Jan 45 to Koblenz where the record shows the Garton crew had to ditch in Y-29.

Thanks very much! MS

P.J. Sullivan

My father was shot down on a later Merseburg raid date Nov.21, 1944
But was able to land in Belgium,thus saving both aircraft 'Mrs.Aldaflak' and crew

I'm just beginning to understand why

His crews were led by Lt Shackleford, Lt Keeling and Lt. Speer.
His A2 sports 'Maximum Effort' 43-38267, although he flew on several different B-17Gs.

irving slotnick

Sir. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My uncle Max Slotnick was the tail gunner on the B-17G ' NOBODY'S BABY'
They were shot down by heavy flak on their return from Frankfurt.
The men in other planes said that the entire crew bailed out safely.
At that time the nazis had roving bands of thugs to kill these men on the ground.
It was their 20th mission.
We grew up together and I regarded him as my elder brother.
I always felt I was in the wrong war.
I served in the Korean 'police action' as a combat medical corpsman.

With utmost respect. Irv Slotnick
