    My father was Lester Van Gorkom the person who took the photo. On April 9th his plane went down as well and he was taken as a POW and lost his right arm due to frac and poor care as a POW.

    This is my grandfather! I never was able to meet him but am so happy to have come across this! If you have anything else on him, I would love to see it! Thanks so much!

    Airplane mechanics (MOS 747) of the 546th BS (and one sheet metal worker, Ernest Braswell) in front of their barracks. The photo comes from Walter Michalojko.

    The caption under the photo Labeled Bice Crew 547th BS has Frederick Griggs correctly identified. I have the original photo. The notation next to the comment under DrNancy is not correct as John McNamara back row is mis-identified. 3rd from left, back row in "Eisenhower jacket" IS Frederick Griggs. I have no information of other crew.

    I’ve been looking into my grandfather’s history and the history of WW2. This is the airplane he was shot down in. He became a prisoner of war but was able to come back home after the war. His name is Lester Van Gorkom. If you have any other information, please, please, email me @ jrstars15@gmail.com
