Hi! I sent the request for the idpf to the us total army command. I have a letter fomr them, dated Sept. 12th, stating they have my request and I can expect further response in approx. 8 weeks. But, I have yet to hear anything from them.How long should I wait before contacting them again?What is Perscom?? I know there is a site that says they can get all the files, but I can't afford to be spending a minimum of $30 per file. Thanks for the warning about the possibilty of the file being graphic. We've decided we want to know what happened, no matter what. As no one knows a thing about Peter.I appriate your help. Your telling me that 6/28/44 is when the plane went down has already cleared up one of the questions we had. I can't find him on any of the websites for ww2 squadrons that are out there.
