I am the daughter of Carl William Ward who flew in the 92nd Bomb Group and the 407th Bomb Squadron. He was a S/Sgt and was Right Waist gunner the day he was shot down. Usually his position was the tail gunner. He was shot down during the Schweinfurt Raid of October 14, 1943 over Dresden, Germany. He was then taken prisoner to Stalag III and later moved to Stalag 17b. The pilot was killed, Lt. Stafford W. Webb and I believed only 4 survived the crash, my father, the Co-pilot Harry C. McIntosh, the Radio man Sgt. Harold F. Cooke, the Ball Turret gunner S/Sgt. George J. Caldon.
I would be interested in anyone who knew him or knows more about this group. Any pictures would be greatly welcome and I would be happy to send pictures of my dad in uniform also. His boot camp was Fort Custer, MI and I don't know where he trained after that. He passed away September, 1993. Thank you.
