I noticed today by chance that the AAF Forum has a new member Mike Etlze (Welcome Mike), others please see http://www.forum.armyairforces.com/members/mike-etzel.530/ although Mike has added no direct posts, and frankly the 92nd BG forum must look pretty empty to a new member, until the crashed forum data is restored. Mike and his research team have done all the heavy lifting, so this is just passing the good word within this AAF Forum to inclusion of this crew within the 92nd BG Forum. Links of interest: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=vcsr&GSvcid=298017 Jaap Vermeer MDE there are two here within your scope of care at Margraten; Sgt Edward "Etz" Etzel, Jr http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=56298543 and SSgt Ellis E Montgomery http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSvcid=298017&GRid=56301977& the other seven members of this crew were provided a way home to the United States for interment. There is much to this story, where Mike has already covered this topic elsewhere. As such, much of this is redundant for this AAF Forum: Joe Baugher: B-17G-100-BO-43-38932 delivered Lincoln Oct 14, 1944, to Cheyenne Oct 26, 1944, to Grenier Nov 7, 1944.

Also see http://www.americanairmuseum.com/aircraft/12937 I hope this is a good start in remembrance and honor for this KIA crew of 43-38932 inside this AAF Forum, and in remembrance of Sgt Edward Etzel, Jr, ASN 36841015, Ball Turret Gunner, from Butler WI; still stationed overseas.
