2009 — Pa.
My grandfather, St. Sgt Robert Kunselman #33496860 was with the 319th Bomber Group. He was a engineer gunner. He did a favor for a buddy on August 9th, 1944 (his daughters 2nd birthday) and traded missions with him. Their Marauder B/N 13 42-107546 ended up running out of gas returning from a the mission and crashing in a mountainous area near Sardinia.
My question is, my father was just a baby when his dad was killed, Granddad was just about 21 years old. We are trying to find out as much about is time in service as we can. He was very good friends with a lot of people but one in particular that we have pictures of, who was Sgt. John. J. Murphy at the time, he had a wife named Wilma. My family has been looking for them for years. If anyone could help we would be forever grateful. I have included pictures of them with my grandparents and also a few pictures that someone might be able to recognize some of the people or places that the pictures were taken.
Thank you so much for the help! Sincerely,
Melissa A. Case
