Laurel, who served in the Army stateside during World War II, says his brother-in-law was so close to coming home. The B-24 crews typically flew 30 missions, then returned home.
The Dec. 2, 1944, mission was his 29th.
What little they know of that day is that the squad was heading to a bombing target when they encountered "tremendous" weather and were ordered to return to base, Laurel says. The B-24 Edward was in, plus one other, never showed up.
"The nearest they could figure out, the two planes had come together in the storm," Laurel says. He said a crew member from one of the planes that made it back reported hearing what he thought was an explosion, but no evidence of the same was found.
...
Doris and Laurel donated the diary and photographs of her brother to Lawrence's collection of military memorabilia. The couple were impressed with his dedication to preserving the stories of local servicemen and women, and felt the material would be best entrusted to him.
