The family of Lt. Louis Mossburg provided additional documents to remember the Bolton B-24 crew that was shot down over Yap on June 23, 1944 (two days before my uncle's crew). The new documents include the dreaded Western Union telegram that was sent to families after crews were lost as well as a number of letters from the War Department to Louis's parents. One of the most interesting letters is from a 307th Bomb Group friend, Alfred E. Daywalt, who wrote to the mother of William Reilly after the war to try and explain what happened to the crew on June 23, 1944. So much history in the letters that traumatized the families back in the 1940's and now we use it to remember the men so they will not be forgotten!
