Actually my Dad was in the US Army Air Force. He was a B-25 pilot and was KIA October 19, 1944 while attacking a bridge north west of Milan Italy. He is buried at the Sicily Rome American Cemetery in Italy. He was just shy of his 23rd birthday.
He is survived by his son Robert H. Meek, Jr Colonel USA(R) and three grandsons, Corbin, Majors Robert III US Army and David USAF and 4 great grandchildren.
