In Memoriam: 440th Troop Carrier Group killed in action during WWII

On this Memorial Day, May 27, 2013, we pause to reflect the sacrifices of those military members who have gone before and have given their all in the line of duty. To these men, who lie forever secure in their youth and courage, this record of the achievements to which they gave the full measure of sacrifice is dedicated in affectionate remembrance of their comrades from the 440th Troop Carrier Group during World War II.
