Good Morning Folks and Howdy from Texas!
I will admit that I am here mainly for one thing and that is to complete a mission! I have been tasked by a family member to assist the nephew of BG Robert J. Gill (US ARMY) in the identification of BG Gill's awards, medals and decorations. I recognize several as US Army awards and have found others to be from Europe. I am in need of assistance in verification of what I have researched and the identification of some that I can't locate.
Ok so I may not be here just for one thing as I come from a military family with an aviation background. I enjoy anything that relates to WWII and airplanes. So I see myself wandering around the forum topics.
My uncle was a B17 tail gunner with the 8th Air Force during WWII and survived the Schweinfurt and Regensburg bombing missions. I wish I had more information but as my Father has told me many times that my uncle would not go into any details about any of his missions. Matter of fact it wasn't until the 90s did we learn about the Schweinfurt and Regensburg bombing missions. Completely understandable.
Thanks for the allowing me to be a part of this group!
