Robert Eugene Shultz, Virginia

Robert Eugene Shultz

Robert Eugene (Gene) Shultz attained the rank of Sergeant and became the left-waist gunner and engineer on a B-24 Liberator bomber.  He was assigned to the 44th Bomb Group and 506th Bomb Squadron based out of Shipdham, England.

On their very first mission to bomb over Helmstadt, Germany, their aircraft was struck by flak and damaged.  The aircraft could not keep up with the bomber formation and soon became a target for fighters.  Sgt. Shultz was either killed or badly injured during these attacks. 

His body was initially interred in the District of Forest Oberrosphe six miles east of Treisbach, Germany.  On May 15, 1945, Sgt Shultz and three other of his crewmates were reinterred in Netherlands Cemetary.  Later, the body was returned to the family and interred at St. John's Reformed Church, near Middlebrook, Virginia.
