    Seeking Records re uncle who was killed on WWII mission

    Newbie

      My uncle name is on the tablet of missing at national cemetery in Manila, Philippines. Any information about his demise would be appreciated. He was from Columbus Ga. and his name was Cepheus Carmichael

          Dear Mr. Carmichael,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the index to the Missing Aircrew Reports (MACRs) in the Records of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) but were unable to locate a MACR for Cepheus Carmichael.

           

          For information regarding U.S. servicemen missing during WWII, we suggest you contact the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), Public Affairs Office, 2300 Defense Pentagon, ATTN: External Affairs, Washington DC 20301-2300.

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
