I am going to try again to get the government to exhume the grave in St Louis to find what if anything is in there. My brother was killed in the Philippines in 1945. Rescue reached the crash site right away. Left the crew, all killed we think, to lie there for almost one year.
When recovered they could no longer be individually identified. Until being returned to the states in 1949 they were buried and exhumed three times.ID's were numbers which were changed twice. Finally named.
Recent documents show searches to the crash site through 1951 additional remains were recovered each time. At that time, 1951, the remains went missing.
I tried to have his status changed to MIA. My request was denied.
My search has been going on for many, many years.We need closure.
We did fight to get a memorial stone for him in Arlington National Cemetery last year.
I will appreciate suggestions on contact names, ideas, etc.
