Headquarters Troop, 101st Squadron
Many of the names on this list were taken from notes made regarding a photo of the troop taken at Camp Campbell, Kentucky in 1944. The names were written down after the war from memory, and I have found a number of misspellings when those names are compared to some I already have. If you are looking for a particular person, please take the time to read through the entire list to see if it might be listed, but spelled incorrectly.
