Seaching for Missing Planes

  • Panama

Jule had already served five years in the Army Air Corp during WWII and survived. On the day of his death, two B-17's were patrolling in search of missing planes and investigating the possible sighting of a life raft when this tragic accident occurred. Twenty crew members died.

"They were so good to little sister Brenda."

    Written by my mother Brenda Steunenberg Richards on the back of the above picture of Jule: "Brenda's brother Jule (Juke) youngest of my 3 brothers. "They were so good to little sister Brenda."

      Thanks for sharing the story of "Juke."
