JOHN JAMES SCOTT, JR. with Army-Air Foce in 9/1946 TO 7/1947
Posted by: Teresa Scott (ID *****5571) Date: July 04, 2003 at 08:22:06
  of 784

My father joined the Army-Air Force in November 1945, stationed at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, and then with the 3505th, Sq A9 (Air Corp unassigned) before being shipped to France from September 1946 through July 1947. At that time he was in "heavy maintenance) as evidenced by a description of he and some buddies on the back of a photo. I also have a photo of him on the engine of a C54 (?) which he inscribed "Used to take Amercian Big Wigs to the Peace Conference." I assume he must have been stationed in the Paris Region.

I have been unsuccessful this far in obtaining copies of his AF file ... I don't know if it is because he spent the last 20 years of his career in OSI, or just because my request has been lost, twice.

I am trying to locate my half-brother, born to a French girl in late 1947 or early 1948. My dad died in 1972 and so I cannot ask his help. My aunt, his sister, told me of this son last July, and for the past year, my search has been fruitless.

I know nothing of the boy's mother, and the boy may possibly be named Etienne, or Andre. The mother corresponded with my grandmother, Agnes, for a period of time.

I have a picture of some buddies of his whose last names were Glen Hagler, ? LaLiberty, and Billy Clarke, all of whom were in France together. Clarke was in supply corp, Hagler was in heavy machinery as was my dad, and I believe LaLiberty was a radioman.

This is truly a needle in a haystack, but I need to keep trying. Can anyone help?

Thank you and wish me luck. Ree
