I've been trying to find info on my grandfather's unit from the war. All my mother ever knew was he was a waist gunner on a 17 and has pictures and stories from the war. What she doesn't have is anything that ever said what bomb group or squadron he was assigned. They've sadly never really tried to find this info so I've taken up the mantle. From what I've discerned so far I believe he was in the 482nd 813th squadron. Please if anyone has any info on Staff Sergeant Roy H. Baine please let me know. He would have been a waist gunner on a B-17. Email me at kpete879@att.net. I'm also looking for databases that list every plane and everyone aboard to scour the names in search of his. Hope you can help.

My father was trained on the H2X in March 1945, and I believe served as a Radar Navigational Bombing lead in April 1945.

Eric Bensel

For my grandfather, Maj. Paul P. Bensel Sr.(ret) who left us this year at 88. He was a B-17 pilot in the 8th AF, first with the 388th BG, and with the 482nd. He was one of the lead ships over Normandy on D-day. He survived both Schweinfurt and Reginsburg raids as well.
For he and the fellow crews of the greatest generation. If I can be a 3rd of the man he was I will have achieved greatness in my life. These men are leaving big shoes to fill.

Peter John Butucel III

Vanden Willey, Jr.

I am re-building a shadow box with my father's medals and patches as the original was lost in a house fire years ago. I just wanted to say that my father, Vanden Willey, served with the 8th in the 100BG & 350BS and later transfered to the 482BG, 812S and I wanted to research any information on his service. Thanks, Vanden Willey, Jr.
