Hello, No I do not know Mr. Gaudinsky. I was told that my uncle's name is on a WWII memorial in Honolulu and I have seen his name on the plaque at Akron University, although he attended Kent State Univ in Ohio.
I don't know very much about it except that he successfully deployed his bomb which hit the target, I understand a hanger, and was then shot down. He was posted on the carrier U.S.S. Franklin.
