Database Search

You are in the database section of the website.

Select a record category from RECORDS above. When you have selected a category, you will see search options for that category above the record list. 

Most fields require at least three characters. When you submit your query, the search engine will return all records that contain your search term.

Note that when searching for an aircraft serial number, you must enter the full serial number without the leading "4" and without a dash in the Aircraft SN search field. For example, you would enter 42-37772 as 237772.

The Personnel name field searches both last and first names, so if you enter the search term, "Russ", the search engine will return both Russell Abel and James Russell.

You narrow the search by entering more characters into the search field. For example, "Russ" returns many hits. "Russell" returns fewer hits. The same principle applies to all queries.

The POW and KIA categories are list only and are not searchable.

Hello!
Thank you for responding so quickly!  I have forwarded this to my brother since all our dad's stuff was spread out through his large family and then given to us as the years have gone by! He might also have some pictures and patches for you to look at.
I think the name of Dad's plane was S-Sugar. That is what was written on the back of his picture. The insignia on his jacket was Rising Beauty.  I have no records of missions or anything like that. I know the other members of my family don't either. 
You probably think it is strange that after all these years I am showing in interest in my father's military history.  I never really thought a lot about it until now. He never talked about it when we were growing up and when we all got older he had already died. He was dianosed with cancer when he was 45 and died at 50.  I was diagnosed 4 yrs. ago and am going through it again and am going to turn 50!  So...I have been thinking about my dad a lot lately. 
Thank you so much for Mr. Gibbons phone number. I haven't had a chance to call him yet, but will try soon. I will also make copies of the photographs and get them to you as soon as I can.  I would love to see pictures of my dad on your website!!!! I think my family would get a real kick out of seeing it, also!!
Thanks again.
Chris

MESSAGE: Looking for more information and have pictures on my father, the late Bernard L. Hanger.  He joined the 8th USAAF in 1945, was with the 3rd Bombardment Div., 13th Combat Bombardment Wing, 100th Bombardment Group, 350th Bombardment Squadrom Crew (I think)!!  I have pictures and patches but not sure about how I can help you with some of your updates.  I can't seem to verify much so maybe I should get a hold of the historian, instead. I have plane and crew pictures, pictures of crashed airplanes, pictures of planes dropping bombs on Germany, barracks pictures, and some pictures of John Gibbons.  It seems my dad was buddies with him...or maybe he just got his picture but my dad is also in the picture.  I can't seem to find names of his other buddies.  I would like to contact them to see if they are still alive. Is there anymore information you would like from me...have I given you too much...not enough? Thanks for your time!
Bernard's Daughter,
