My Dad Paul Roland Seymour was a Veteran of World War2,servingin the19th and43rd Bomb Groups in the
5th Air Force in the Southwest Pacific from February 1942- November 1945. Dad arrived here
in Brisbane aboard the Troop Ship Bliss. I have found Dad's journal that he wrote while on this ship. I have typed it out word for word. I have included some photos. Dad was an aerial photographer. I would be happy to email this to you if you could send me an email address. Dad has died so I would be happy to share this history with you. Sincerely Sylvia B. Seymour

Great informational website. My father, Staff Sergeant Raymond W. Bryant served in the 403rd enlisting 12/26/1941 after Pearl Harbor to his discharge 10/04/1945. He spent all his service till his last 4 months of service in Australia & New Guinea as part of the Ground Crew in the Supply Depot. My father, unfortunately, passed away November 7, 2013 at the age of 94. He would have enjoyed your information immensely. Thank you.

As I was reading General Kenney's book "Air War in the Pacific and read about the bravery and balls the Major McCullar had. My ancestor was a tail gunner that did not survive with the 90th Bomb Group aboard Captain Dick Adam's B-24 when it was shot into the sea after bombing Wewak. I had a chance to talk with a suvivor of the crash, before he died and he told me the whole story. The 90th lost 3 B-24's that day of Dec. 1, 1943

I am so thankful for being able to access this website. I am Kenny Stevens's great grandson and it is just amazing to be able to see him during the war in a picture that does not involve naked women. Thank you for keeping these records they have been a great help.

From: Arkansas
My grandfather, Harold Hammons, served as a tech sergeant with Ken's Men. Sadly, I never knew him, but I am so thankful for his service and sacrifice, as well as the service of all of our WWII veterans. I am proud to be his granddaughter, and hope I am honoring his memory by teaching my 5th grade students about the Greatest Generation. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, and God bless everyone who has served our country.

Your site has provided valuable information in my research into the WWII veterans of Weld County, Colorado who were killed in the service of their country. I will be certain to reference your site in my published work. Thank you so much.
