Early War MIA Philippines

Post by Mr.Chris » Sun Dec 27, 2009 11:37 pm

Folks:

My Grandmothers brothers wife's brother was MIA in the Philippines in an aircraft crash sometime before the death march. He was a passenger. Does anyone have a list of such crashes before the death march?

Thanks,

Chros

All I know was his last name, "Vincent", and he was in the Army or Navy.

To narrow down the search-what state did his family reside in?

Thanks very much for your help! It could have been Homer Vincent, as the date of his death is in '42
