RE: Help w/ Info. on 400th KIA named Hatley?
Well, I actually made unexpected progress today, and found that Gene Hatley was killed when his B-24, "Ho Hum" #42-109983, exploded shortly after takeoff on 4/8/45. This is documented in Wiley Woods' history of the 90th. This was Lt. Honsal's plane.
So, what I'm curious about now is whether anyone out there remembers this or knows if any of the survivors are still around? In the meantime, I have sent off for Gene's records.
And Scott, thanks for the advice!
