TITLEStanley J. Mroz - 390th bombardment group 570th squadron
POSTED BYdlmroz
COMMENTSI am the grandson of Stanley J. Mroz who was a pilot of a B17 plane. He passed away in 2005. Before he passed, he spoke of his stories when he was on his missions. On his 10th and final mission, his plane was shot down. He parachuted down and was captured. He was a POW until the of the war. He has many pictures and patches from the war. I am trying to find anyone who knew his crew members. I heard his stories, but I was young. It'd be great to share our prospectives. I can be reached at 609.513.5971 or by way of email at dlmroz@udel.edu
