    My Great Uncles POW-MIA paper from the Philippine Island

    Post by Guest on Sun Nov 28, 2010 1:25 am

    Well I never met him and I have asked my Grandma if she had the paper of what the Army sent home saying he was a POW and MIA. And she found it today and this will be in my collection as she is giving me it. He was a Pvt and I am unsure of what divison he was or anything as I didnt want to ask questions. The paper says it all. Sorry about the bad pictures they are from my phone.

    I cant find any information about the 28th Material Squadron 20th Air Base I was wondering if they had patches for this squadron as I would like to have one to go with the paper to display
