1st Lieutenant Jack A. Kelly 306th Bomber Group 369th Bomber Squadron (d.14th Oct. 1943)

My uncle, Jack A. Kelly, my dads' brother and my namesake, was a bombardier and 1st Lieutenant for a B17 crew. His plane went missing on 14th October 1943 on a mission over Germany and the crew were eventually declared dead. His memorial is at the Tablets of the Missing at Luxembourg City, Luxembourg. I never knew my uncle, but now that I am getting older I would like to do more to honor his memory.

S/Sgt. Harry C. Moore 306th Bomb Group

My grandfather, S/Sgt Harry C Moore was the flight engineer on board the B17 the "Belle of the Blue". I have been looking for anyone with more information on the plane. I have a picture of the plane and some other pics, including one of my grandfather in a POW camp after he was shot down in 1944. I know he was on both Schweinfurt missions and flew several missions on the "Rose of York" as well.
