1. The AAF forum will close permanently on December 1, 2017. I no longer have the time to manage a project like this, obviously, or give it the attention that it deserves. I still think fondly of the early days in 1998 when this all got started. A small, but eager group of tech savvy 1st and 2nd generation descendants made great friends with the last of the WWII veterans thru the newfangled internet. They're all gone now. It's time for me to turn the page. Thanks for being along for part of the ride. I'm sorry it got so bumpy in the end.

    Hi Randy,

    I found something on the MACR's but I dont know if this is you looking for. On the MACR's are sometimes
    lists of family of the crashed airmen. Als on Find a Grave there is information or on the the website of the
    National WWII Memorial : www.wwiimemorial.com
    I can send you some MACR's and probably this is what you looking for. Then I can help you with you further research.

    kind regards,

    Jaap Vermeer MDE
