  1. Does anyone have any information concerning Warrant Officer Ransom D. Walker. We have his discharge papers that indicate he was assigned to the 330th. He deployed and arrived on Guam on 11 April 1945. He was subsequently seriously injured (these injuries led to his discharge) in a B29 crash. He departed Guam on 24 May 1945 to receive medical treatment stateside.

    I can not locate his name on any of the unit rosters.

    Thank you for any information.

  2. Hi. I just saw your website where you have the pics and everything, and I found my grandfather. He was in crew 911 of k-59 according to your site. His info is: MSGT FE Joel J. Boersema
    6913095. He passed away June 25, 2009. He was a wonderful grandfather, and great-grandfather to my kids. I noticed you had mention of some men who have passed in more recent years, and if you could add him to that, I would like that. Thank you.
