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.

    Hello,

    I need info if Arnold (Moon) Mullins from 307fs was shot down over Yugoslavia, in August-September 1944.
    John Nelson, from same squadron, in one statement claims that he met him while evading in September 1944.

    (page 10, middle of right column)

    I could not find MACR with Mullins, nor Escape statement.
    Nelson was evacuated on September 17th, in group of 20 American airmen. I have all 20 Escape statements of airmen evacuated in this group, so it seems that Mullins was not with them.

    I did find MACR and Escape statement of James Beckham, from same squadron, shot on same day as Nelson but on different place, and evacuated with him. Except name, he completely fits description.

    It seems that there was mistake in Nelson's statement, that he mistaken Beckham for Mullins.
    But I would like to check it, if possible.
