Re: WWII Ace and Silver Star recipient
Darryl, the reason William Wells wasn't found in any of your sources was because he wasn't given credit and recorded as having any aerial combat victories...he wasn't there. That was the reason for the initial post to begin with...to request assistance in locating or identifying the unit and source documentation in order get proper recognition.
I wouldn't call the lack of information "misinformation"...it's just a matter of digging up the right resources to get verification. We know the engagement took place. Now it's a matter of putting William Wells there at the time and flying that mission.
