I'm trying to find the family of 1 LT. Joe B. Ayers, ASN O-701704, 487th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group. 1 LT Joe B. Ayers died on September 23, 1944.
The following is what I know of Joe B. Ayers and his family.
1 LT Joe B. Ayers was born November 8, 1921. He attended Hazel Park High School and Lincoln Memorial University. As far as I know he lived in Birmingham, MI with his parents M and M.C.Y. Ayers.
Joe B. Ayers started with Primary Flight Training at Hicks Field TX, followed by Basic Flight Training in Enid OK and Advanced Flight Training at Foster Field TX. He was commissioned as a 2nd LT and military pilot on December 5, 1943.
In June of 1944 Joe B. Ayers was assigned to the 487th Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group. On August 2, 1944 he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant.
1 LT. Joe B. Ayers is buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margraten, The Netherlands. His grave is adopted. The family who adopted his grave would like to get in touch with the Ayers family.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who can help us.
