Thank you so much for all the information sent. I really appreciate it a lot. I did write for his military records and they send back a letter saying his records had burned in 1973. I think I might try again since you said supposedly the records of H-Z. It's so sad these records burned, but I know things happen like that.

I joined the organization for the 351st. They publish a magazine about twice a year. I'd written to the publisher with my dad's info and some pictures, asking him if he would publish them in the magazine (newsletter) in hopes that someone out there would have personally known him. He never published it, but he does for other's so don't know what the problem is. I will try again.

My father died just before my 4th birthday and that why I'd like to find someone who may remember him. I have been able to piece together a lot of information so I'm very lucky about that.
Again, thanks for answering my post. Vicki Bever Doze
