Steve G: tmayer, my dad passed when I was just 9 years old, so he never really talked in depth to me about his service. My understanding is that he really never did go into detail with anyone about it, as far as I ever heard. Dec 8, 2020 23:29:05 GMT 8
Steve G: tmayer, dad's decorations: Asiatic-Pacific Theater Ribbon w/3 bronze battle stars & 1 Bronze Arrowhead, Philippine Liberation Ribbon w/1 Bronze Star, Good Conduct Medal, Meritorious Unit Award, WWII Victory Medal Dec 8, 2020 23:34:27 GMT 8
FoCo NoCo Guy: Wild Bill Massello was my HS Calculus teacher '66-'67 in El Paso. Quiet, competent - never talked about his military service. Jan 4, 2021 10:38:37 GMT 8
David Hyde: I have just added some photos by Scott Petrill taken in 1984 to my web page
and one of them resembles the image in: Zd874. The Fort Wint Switch Board Room (SBR) above. Is this correct?

BLussier: I am the niece of Pvt. Robert D. Turner 13030357 listed as MIA on Corregidor. Still working with DPAA on Robert’s case. In the first entry on thread you mention a report and give info from Col. (Chaplain) Boerman that references cremating bodies in tunnel Mar 6, 2021 10:58:01 GMT 8
BLussier: Is it possible to get a copy of that report? DPAA analyst never heard this before. I read the same info in a book. It was reported by a doc in the tunnel. Unfortunately I did not write the book title/ author info so can not use that info as evidence this Mar 6, 2021 11:02:20 GMT 8
BLussier: is what could have happened to Robert’s body. Thank you! Bobbye (Turner) Lussier Mar 6, 2021 11:04:28 GMT 8
