Walter's story and pictures will be coming from his proud son Burton "Burt" C Keeble;
January 5, 2006
I am the son of AAF Capt. Walter Burton Keeble. On December 24, 1942 Lt. Keeble was assigned as an assistant S-2 officer in Photo Interpretation for the 445 Bomb Squadron of the 321st Bomb Group. On May 26, 1943, Lt. Keeble was assigned to A-2 Photo Interpretation for the 47th Wing of the 15th Air Force. He was promoted to Captain in December, 1943. Captain Keeble was killed early in the morning of July 9, 1944, while enroute to retrieve fresh film from a bombing raid. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who can help me get information about my father. Burton Keeble (email@example.com)
Read about the 47th Wing of the 15th Air Force where Lt Keeble was promoted to as Captain and an S-4 Intelligence Officer/ Combat Mission Photo Interpretation.
This is most-likely the Group that Capt. Keeble was stationed with;
