My friend Homer N Burchett
I have known my friend Homer for many years and didn't know he was in the service. I go to church with him and in our sunday school class (50 and older) I asked the question if anyone had been in WWII. To my surprise Homer told me he was a radio operator on the "Lillian Anne" and the "Lillian Anne II." He flew 30 missions and the worst one was "Gotha" where there group lost 13 bombers. He's like most of our war veterans he doesn't talk about the war at all. I have known him for many years and this is news to me.
My question is, how would or could I find out if any of his crewmates are still alive? I have been downloading different items I have found on the webb about his BG and he loves looking and reading what I find. I would love to surprise him on his 83rd birthday, with news of a friend still living or even a phone call to him.
My next question would be, How do I find a list of missions he flew on? Or is this even possible?
Sure hope you all can help me out.
