He’s not someplace on a little island or at the bottom of the ocean. He’s home October 28, 2009

Welcomed home by his two brothers, Edward and Richard.  After sixty five years.

WWII Airman Found

Clues captured on film, so long ago, made it possible to find his remains, and those of some of his aircrew.

Then, in 2000, several members of the group doing more research stumbled upon obscure black-and-white aerial photos in the National Archives that were taken by a crew member aboard another bomber just moments after Stinson’s plane went down. The team thought it odd the photographer had taken shots when no bombs were falling, and then realized the pictures were probably an attempt to document where the bomber crashed.

Because of the fine efforts of this organization, called BentProp.

Requiescat in pacem, Sergeant Robert Stinson.

Thanks to the folks that work so hard to find our missing Vets. Never forget.

For two decades after her son’s bomber went down in the Pacific Ocean during World War II, Vella Stinson faithfully wrote the U.S. government twice a month to ask if his body had been found — or if anyone was looking.

Can’t even imagine…
