Re: WWII Ace and Silver Star recipient
I checked the WORLD WAR II AERIAL VICTORY CREDITS which are online and they do not show a "William D. Wells" as being credited with any victory credits. I checked the files by name, 67th FS, 68th FS, 70th FS, 347th FG, etc and could find him nowhere. What is the source of the information of "Lt. William D. Wells, pilot of a P-39 fighter aircraft shot down four Japanese bombers over Guadalcanal on 17 Jun 1943 earning the Silver Star Medal"? If that had happened it certainly should have been listed in the Victory Credits.
