U.S. 6th Air Force lost airmen memorial in Panama
Bob Taylor, WWII Army Air Corps aircraft mechanic on P-38s & P-40 in Panama during the war. He is the organizer of the Antique Airplane Association and the Airpower Museum in Iowa see: http://antiqueairfield.com/ & Caribbean Breeze II (CB II) an organization for member of the 6th Air Force during WWII which included Panama, central & south America & surrounding waters. Interested people such as myself being born & raised in Panama are welcome to join Bob‘s CB II. Bob “has a dream”, he wants to build a memorial to lost airmen who never came back from flights in the 6th AF & their remains were NEVER recovered. This memorial would be located in the U.S. Veteran’s cemetery in Panama on what was the former Panama Canal Zone. The administrator of the cemetery says they do NOT have funds for such a project, so Bob’s dream is to get permission to build a memorial, collect donation & build this monument. Does anyone have any suggestions for Bob on how to proceed with this project? Bob’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org Please help Bob see his dream to fruition. Bob will be 90 this year, God Bless Bob & all our WWII vets & GOD BLESS AMERICA.
