TITLEWorld War 2 history of World War 2 Veterans
COMMENTSI have been collecting and documenting the history of our World War II Veterans since 1998. I currently have over 360 veterans from all branches and ranks, in my ???private library???. I have always been interested in World War II and what better way to learn this is to talk to the men and women who lived it. It is my way of keeping their memories and stories alive. For every World War II Veteran we loose, a piece of history is gone forever. I believe that it should be told to someone who is willing to take the time to document their story. For the men and women, who served during World War II, they all have a great story to tell, whether they were in combat or sitting behind a desk. They answered the call to duty in a time when more the half the world was at war. When it is my time to pass on, all this information will be placed in the General Patton Museum in Chiriaco Summit, CA so that future generations will know what these men and women went through. One day, all of our Veterans from World War II, will have passed on and so will their stories. Peter Minix Former Marine Sgt. Indio, CA

TITLEMis Behavin - John S. Massa
POSTED BYJohn S. Massa
COMMENTSMy dad, Manfred C. Massa (1915-2003), named me for his brother, T/Sgt John Samuel Massa (Serial# 13131407), radio operator on the B-17F "Mis Behavin" (Aircraft Serial#: 23415; 390th Bomb Group; 571 Bomb Squadron: Pilot: George Starnes-Serial#:0-798042), KIA over Munster on Oct 10, 1943; 1515 (3:15pm) on the Munster raid. A German rocket fired by Major Karl Boehm-Tettleback, commander of ZG/26 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zerst%C3%B6rergeschwader_26), hit B-17 "Miss Fortune" (Aircraft Serial#:23328; Pilot: Wade Hampton Sneed), which then pitched up into "Mis Behavin" destroying both planes. Both planes were based in Framlingham, England, known as "Station 153". This specific encounter is meticulously described from the point of view of the American flyers, the German fighter pilots, and the German ground anti-aircraft crew, in the book THE MUNSTER RAID: BEFORE AND AFTER (1999; Ian L. Hawkins) pages 160 - 163. ownpetard@yahoo.com

TITLEMy Dad - John A. Rose from Peoria
COMMENTSI grew up listening to Dad's stories. He hand-carved a model of his plane and used pieces of the Mae West for seat covers and plexiglass chips for the ports. He was probably called "Johnny" by his friends, was married, and from Peoria, Illinois. He was a comparatively small man and light. He flew as tail-gunner and armament specialist. He is still around but frail. He is my main hero, and I would love to find out more info about his squadron, crew and the plane(s). His stories and raising led me to a career in the Air Force, he's a great guy.
