1st Lt. James D. Spraley USAAC Italy
I am in possesion of a lists of "Awards of Distinguished Flying Cross or Oak-Leaf Cluster in Lieu Thereof" for the 87th Fighter Squadron, 79th Fighter Group of the Twelfth Air Force in Italy, dated 11 May, 1945.
There are only two recipients on this one page, my late father, 1st Lt. William C. Waller and a 1st Lt. James D. Spraley.
I would like to pass this along to either Lt. Spraley or his family, or in the alternative, a bonafide researcher of Air Force history.
Additionally, I am interested in any history or stories of the 87th Fighter Squadron, 79th Fighter Group, Twelfth Air Force.
Thank you in advance for your time.

daughter of William C. Waller
