+1! Having said that, there are truly millions of heroes over the years who have gone without proper recognition.

A little over 73,000 US servicemen from World War II are unaccounted for, according to DPAA.

So close to the end of the war. Thank you and we salute you Lieutenant Gray. RIP

Dive-bombing and strafing which were usually done together were the two most dangerous fighter missions in WWII. The P-47 excelled at both and suffered higher losses as a result. It was rugged and some brought their pilots back with damage that made them total losses.

Took me a minute to figure out the relationship - article as written was a little confusing at first. "Louvier" - the man whose ashes the pilot was buried with, was a close friend of his in the war. Louvier then went home after the war and married the pilot's younger sister. So not a father - son relationship but still significant and an honorable way to be laid to rest.

Just drove through lindau today after visiting the Zeppelin- NT hangar and assembly center in Friedrichshafen. Earlier this week visited the largest American WWII cemetery in St.Avold France - over 14,000 buried from last months of the war including one dated May7th, a day before the end.... from a father of three twenty-something sons, RIP Lieutenant Gray.

With so many pilots and members of all Services MIA for that matter who gave their lives for the good of our country and yet trying to find Amelia´s fate commands more attention and funds. Impossible to understand.

?? Amelia was hugely important to this country and to pilots and all aviation over the world. Why trash her??
jturanin
I don't interpret chalet's statement as trashing Amelia specifically. It's just the dichotomy of attention and effort that is the curious aspect. Amelia received the attention she rightly deserves. Those who also gave their lives, perhaps not as much....
