Thanks for your reply. I have not really found anything. There is a reunion of the survivors of the 3 ships Lanley, Whipple, and Pecos but I have not contacted anyone yet.
How did you know your uncle was taken POW? My father always feared this but felt his brother was among the first to die as he worked in the engine room where the Langley was hit.
I have written the VA to get my uncle's VA file but will check in to the personnel records.
Any information you can give me would be great.
Thanks again. Look forward to hearing from you.
