Seeking information about my uncle a bombadier

Post by cpa2222 » 18 Sep 2022 1708

My uncle, Emil Ashley Jordan was a bombardier and was killed May 12, 1945 off Mindanao. Apparently his plane exploded right after take off from wherever he had been stationed. I would like to know anything anyone can remember or has written about him. I was born 4 months after he was killed so I never met him.
