William James Stangel’s name is not in the Silent Secretary.
William James Stangel is well known on the Internet, so is his P-51 Stinky 2.
I was looking for his name, but I stumbled on this one instead.
Albert Dalton Braswell…
Brasswell wanted to go to Toronto.
Albert Dalton BRASWELL, son of William and Dora, was born September 14, 1921, Blue Ridge, Texas, and died February 26, 1943. He married Gloria Belle Staton, who was born February 13, 1924, Fort Worth, Texas. They had six children.
My grandfather, Albert Dalton Braswell, was killed along with all his mates when their plane went down off Apalachicola, Florida (don’t think I spelled it right). He was a passenger. He was cremated and ashes were spread over the ocean. My mother got a pension from the government as a result of this during her childhood.
