Very poignant grouping. Thanks for sharing. I have a USN Posthumous Purple Heart from the USS Honolulu for the same action,

I agree.

 

Have a Navy Good Conduct in my collection to a CBM serving aboard Honolulu at the same time. Survived the War thankfully.

Found this on another site.Originally posted by Coby Treadway.

 

Shot down on the night of March 11/12, 1944 during operations over Hollandia. Interestingly, I have read that the crew was believed to have survived the crash only to be executed by the Japanese. The plane was piloted by LTJG Russell M Childs and I believe the entire crew was as follows:

 

LTJG Russell M Childs
ENS John C Thornton
ARM2 William Desh
ARM2 William Lee Treadway Jr
AOM3 John Mihalik
AOM3 George F Davis
AMM2 Kenneth P Shields
AMM3 Marshall D Coke Jr

Sad family story. Excellent research. Their memory will endure.  R.I.P. brothers.
