Hey all,

 

I posted this in the Aircraft section as well, but I figured I'd post it here. I'm looking for a WWII KIA Purple Heart for a 2LT Morris D. Rosenthal. I realize the chances of finding it are slim, but I'm on a mission. Here's the story:

 

I've started a major research project with my latest acquisition. I snagged an AAF officer's service jacket off of evil bay and it sparked something. The jacket is named to a LT M. Rosenthal and on the name tag it says Class 43-15 Hondo. Hondo AAF was the primary Navigator training base. I've found two others from his class that went on to Bombardier school right after Nav school.

 

There were two M. Rosenthals that were Army Officers during WWII. Morris M. Rosenthal was a lawyer and would have been 34 in 1943. The other, Morris D. Rosenthal, enlisted in the AAF in 1942, was in Navigator school in October 1943 and became a bombardier in the 882nd Bomb Squadron, 500th Bomb Group on Saipan. His aircraft, B-29A 42-24687 "Tokyo Local" crashed on their fifth mission with all aboard KIA.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Jon
