Lieut. A.J. Brassfield of Missouri
I just purchased off of ebay an cachet envelope dated May 17, 1943 that was mailed from Wilmington, North Carolina to Los Angeles. It has a two cent stamp on it. What is interesting about the envelope is that it has a picture of Uncle Sam saluting and under it is the following: "A Salute to Lieut. A. J. Brassfield of Missouri who knocked off seven Jap planes in the historic Midway battle. American Aces have only begun to click."Does anyone know of this A.J.?, was he killed in battle, etc? Thanks for any help.
