Last night I was able to enter the basic information for crew I had on file listed as living, killed in action and unknown. There are 227 deceased crewman left to enter the basic profile information. Once that is complete I will go through my records to verify when the crew was aboard and then begin developing the full crew profiles.
I ran across the quote at the bottom of this post the other day and felt that it applied well to the process of developing this website over the years. I’m able to get most of the data I have entered and the site functional, then I lose some of the knowledge that comes quickly as I hadn’t been working on the website for a period of time… but it is when times like this arrive where I remember once again… I will not forget those who served.
