CBI MIA 341st BG 490th BS
I am looking for any information at all on my uncle.This is what I've been able to establish:
Louis J. Corradino
MIA-Tablets of the Missing @ Manila American Cemetery
Declared Dead: 3/6/46
490th Bomber Squadron
341st Bomber Group
May1941 was stationed at Camp Edwards, MA
Sept 1942 was stationed at Mitchel Field, NY- Have Photos of him with another soldier, Jack Eady at the Kirk Estate in Lake Ronkonkoma NY
July 1944 received Air Medal as Armorer-Gunner from April 19, 1944-June 14, 1944
I have in my notes the date of 8/11/44 as the date he went missing, but not sure if this is correct.
I remember hearing that he had been shot down over the jungles of Burma (CBI).
The same date that he was declared dead, another soldier from the 341st was also declared dead. Maybe they went missing together?His name was John W. Pomphrey 11116267.
Any information that you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
