Ninth Air Force pilot serial numbers

I had posted a while back on this same topic--thank you again to all who provided some leads. I followed up on those and still have many gaps to fill. However, I will limit my request to the men listed below, and as before, if someone has ideas on where to access advanced flight school graduation rosters (with serials) or overseas assignment orders, I will do further looking. I have found a number of overseas assignment rosters but not nearly all that would have been generated from 1944-1945 and not all graduating classes listed serials.

492 FS/48th FG Edwin G. Boone, Herbert L. Eggleston, Christian A. Hovde and Fred W. Mueller.

392 FS/367 FG Delbert F. O'Leary
393 FS/367 FG Charles A. George and Wayne J. Sinz
394 FS/367 FG Ray S. Hawks and Joseph V. Raiti

506 FS/404 FG Drew W. Bacon, George H. Gehling, Seth T. Parker, Robert H. Huddleston, Joseph Nichols and Angier G. Woods

509 FS/405 FG Glen M. Dumars and Paul J. Nugent
510 FS/405 FG Jerome A. Riga
511 FS/405 FG James V. Echevarria and Walter A. Grabowski

512 FS/406 FG Hodge W. Doss, and Gabriel F. Vacca
513 FS/406 FG Glen A. Byrns, Thomas J. Corcoran and Alfred W. Marker

428 FS/474 FG Robert E. Hartl
429 FS/474 FG Oren D. Barker, Mayo E. Carroll, and Julius T. Herre

Thanks very much.

Kent

Re: Ninth Air Force pilot serial numbers

Eggleston, Herbert L. 1Lt. D.F.C - Born 4 February 1923 - Died 29 April 2017 -(19132538 ?).

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/mon...939&fhid=32277

But there are these -

Confirmation

But these both seem to be in error, Born 1912 ?

And this too

Re: Ninth Air Force pilot serial numbers

Alex,

Thank you for the help. It appears I may have to schedule trips to re-visit NARA II and Maxwell AFB to go back through documents to see if I can turn up anything which I hadn't found previously.

Re: Ninth Air Force pilot serial numbers

Gary,

Thank you very much for the assistance--it does help is greatly appreciated.

Just so folks know the reason for my inquiries, I am still filling gaps to get my Ninth Air Force fighter operations volumes finished up; the next hurdle is finding a publisher since Schiffer changed their minds. I will give credit to all who have helped, and if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask me via this board or by private message.

Kent

Re: Ninth Air Force pilot serial numbers

Herbert Eggleston passed away in 2017, not 1917.
