My Dad, James W. Dye Jr.(nickname,"Jack") flew in the 91st Bomb Group as a Navigator in 1944, was shot down over Lepzig in Mid July 1944 and was interned at Stalag Luft.I. I was wondering if anyone knew him or what was the name of the plane he was on. I never asked him that question when he was alive, he died in 1987 of cancer, at 63.
Another question that someone may know the answer to is, the Army gives a medal to POW's today, but did'nt in the WWII era,
are WWII vets eligible for this medal today, even posthumusly?

Hi! I recently learned that one of my relatives served (and was unfortunately killed) in the Mighty Eighth during World War II. My great uncle, Lt Herbert Hampy, was a navigator in the 322nd Bomb Squadron, 91st Bomb Group. He was shot down and lost on a raid somewhere over France on, I believe, 23 November 1942. The letter his relatives received indicated he was flying in the squadron commander's (identified as Major Zienowicz) aircraft at the time. I am trying to find out all the info I can about my great uncle's service and sacrifice, including the plane he flew in, how many missions he took part in, details about the mission he was lost on, etc. If anyone can point me in the right direction to find info like this (especially online), I would greatly appreciate it. Even better, if someone knew my great uncle and could provide some personal info about him, I would be greatly indebted. Thanks so much for helping to preserve such an important part of American history and honor the members of the 91st BG who all sacrificed so much!

Hello! My name is Holli. I am 20 years old and an aspiring writer. I had an ex-boyfriend of mine immerse me in the history of World War II while we were together and now I just can't give it up! I am currently trying to develop a novel about a B-17 bomber crew stationed at Bassingbourn in 1943-44. I have part of a tentative outline finished and soon hope to start on the text part of the manuscript. I just wanted to let you know that there are young people who remember and respect those veterans of World War II that are still with us and also those who are not. I for one hope to help others to never forget what they did for us...Thanks.
