  1. That's a great looking website with some really neat artifacts on it! Great job!
  2. Great research on this! I find it interesting as he has the same last name as me. I've only ever met in person two other Doss's that weren't family, not a common last name from my experience. As far as I know he's not related to me as my members on the Doss side all hail from Virginia.
  3. I thought that too, wasn't until I got his record where I found out that wasn't the case.
  4. Is the award card database available online and if so how do you access it?
  5. So I posted some pics of this uniform on the 380th Bomb Group Facebook page to try and see if I could get more information on Lt Schofield. One of the members who wrote a book on the 380th shared some interesting information about the uniform. Apparently Lt Schofield donated it to the Plattsburgh AFB museum back in the 1980s. The museum (and base) had subsequently closed down. Nice to see that the uniform grouping was kept together and now wound up with me as its caretaker!
  6. For what it's worth I have a set of named officer's Alphas from WWII that don't look like they ever had a unit patch on them from what I remember.
  7. Thanks for the info, I didn't know that!
  8. You know one thing I was thinking as I was researching this uniform and the Rock was what constituted a successful wartime patrol? During the Rock's fourth war patrol she had her only confirmed sinking of the war, the Takasago Maru No. 7, however this patrol was not considered successful. Also thanks for the comments everyone!
  9. Some of the paperwork showing his awards. This paperwork was done after the war, looks like when he requested copies of his medals.
  10. This uniform grouping belonged to 1stLt Jack J. Schofield. Lt Schofield was a navigator in the 380th Bomb Group, 5th Air Force. The grouping came with everything pictured (minus the ribbons), including his Navigator wings. I just need to get a tie to complete it. The garrison cap and shirt have his name in it. Lt Schofield was a navigator on the B-24 On De-Fense. This grouping came with an unopened model kit from Monogram of this very plane! There were also a few printed pages of research the seller included, such as his obituary, some information on On De-Fense, and a history of the 380th Bom
