Robert John O'Donnell

date of birth 2/28/21

service number 32307106

 

I posted this on the individual and unit research but it was quickly swept away so I am hoping for better luck here. 

I know he was stationed in france where he was shot down flying a B-25 but I am looking to find his unit and rank(DD-214 if those were around back then). Thanks in advance!

I've tried multiple searches for this person.  Only thing I could find was his draft card and a short obit.  The name is a little common and what keeps coming up is a Robert J. O'Donnell that was a navy officer who I know is not your guy.  Maybe someone else will have better luck.

I don't believe the US Army Air Forces used B-25s in the ETO.

 

Actually they were used, although rarely, in the ETO.  Used in N. Africa as well as the Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO).
