    My fathers, Jerome Palma, was one of the survivor of this crew and plane crash. He is in the photo on the bottom right. He also received the distinguished Flying Cross, Purple Heart and various other medals. He was very badly injured from the crash and spent about 6 months in the Honolulu Naval Hospital recovering from his injuries.
    He returned home to Chicago after the war and became a husband to Lillian, electrician, builder and father to 3 boys. He lived in Downers Grove Il. until 1981 and died from trauma caused by an injury to his head from the aircraft crashing into the ocean.
    He was a wonderful man and lived his life after the war with much honor and enthusiasm for life.
    He is truly missed by his surviving family.
    Thank you dpalma for posting this
