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.

Interest: Relative of veteran
Comments: Trying to find out if my Dad and his best friend were in this outfit.  Can you tell me if you list an Ovie H. Wells &/or a Leon Oswalt.  Both men were from Oklahoma and were aircraft mechanics.  If there is any further information that you require I hope I might have it. Unfortunetly my step-mother pretty well destroyed everything that had to do with his military career.
Thanking you in advance for any assistance you can give to my brother and I.

Here are some pictures of my dad standing in front of the base sign and also the tail of a B-17. maybe the tail marking will help. his service number was 38396597. 
Thanks again
