Leora’s Telegrams: Three Sons Lost During World War II

The next book will include all the research into the brothers’ casualty reports, missions reports, MACRs (Missing Aircraft Reports) from the National Archives and Junior’s accident report. I joined reunion groups so I could correspond with men who knew one of the brothers, one eye witness to the crash, a best friend (he even stopped in Iowa to meet Mom and me).

I’m still in contact with a niece of one bomber crew member, also lost with Dale Wilson, and grandchildren of another.

One chapter will be about an attempt to locate the B-25 off New Guinea, with a diver who hired a boat with side-scanner sonar. It was planned as a documentary.

Stay tuned for publication, probably in 2023.
