P-MAN XI Update #15
- This says it all
Jimmie Doyle was the nose gunner on B-24 '453, which was shot down just north of Koror on 1 September 1944 and which the BentProp team finally located in Palau in 2004 after a 10-year search. JPAC did recovery missions on that underwater site in 2005, 2006, and 2008. Their recovery teams located several sets of remains, which were returned for identification to JPAC's forensic lab at Hickam AFB, Hawaii at the end of each of those missions. Until identification of all remains from a particular site is as complete as they can make it, JPAC generally does not release information about any individual from that site. The following note was sent to us today by Jimmie's son, Tommy Doyle, and his wife Nancy.
