I am Andy Swinnen from the Netherlands .
I recently adopted 4 graves of a soldiers from WW2

We caretakers of the graves at the Netherlands/Belgium American Cemetery and Memorial ( Margraten and Henri Chapelle ) are the ones who will see to it that the men and women buried there will not be forgotten

I go there often with my wife and children to see that his grave is well being taken care for.
I always put flowers on his grave.

I now have Internet and i am trying to find out as much as possible about them but its very hard to find anything about them.
I would like to know everything about them so i can explane it to my children who s in that grave and what kind of men they were.
Now i am always looking at their graves and try to imagine who they were

I am trying the find a face or story behind the grave of this brave men, but i run out of help
So i hope i am at the right address.

I am trying to find any relatives of the only survivor of the crash 1st Lt Herbert L. Oas Jr.
I hope they can tell me more about his crewmen.
They died on 2 nov. 1944 in a b-17 plane crash in Europe and flew with the 615th Bomber Squadron, 401st Bomber Group, Heavy

I really hope you can help me or know someone else.

Thank you very much

Greetings, Andy Swinnen

Mr. Swinnen - I've sent you a brief message in reply to your post on Ancestory.Com. My name is Dave Oas and 1st Lt. Herbert (Bud) Oas was my father. He passed away nearly 30 years ago.

I just recently was viewing your website "Remembering Our Heros" and was very moved. I'm afraid he didn't talk much about his crew and their fate so I can't any information to what you have pulled together in the past 8 years. I'm learning a lot about my father's experiences, largely due to the dedication and tenacity of you and others like you. Thank you so much for giving me new memories of my dad.

If I can be of any service to you, please don't hisitate to contact me at: khp164@hotmail.com

Again, thank you so much,
Dave Oas
