Well done! Most heroes vanish into history with few remembering what they did and who they were. It's so awesome that you've taken up the task of honoring these guys in the way they deserve. Bravo!
Absolutely outstanding work on this website to the "Eager Beavers". Very impressed with Mr Hayes work and hope to see it continue. Look forward to contacting him for a guest interview on Mack Maloney's Military X Files (MMMXF) where I co-host with Mack. This is one of the greatest warrior stories hardly anyone really knows. Checking with a number of military aviation historians, amazed few knew any of the facts. Great work and look for my support in anyway. Respectfully, "commander cobra"
My father is T/sgt. Jay W. Jackson (Stoney)(94th/19bg)(63rd/43bg) 6/42-3/44 I have been reading anything I can get my hands on about the 19th,bg, and 43rd bg for a few years now I've read a couple different accounts of this story, and yours is the most detailed I've encountered. I've put my email in several times and your system rejects it as invalid I'm very interested in following this site. I would love to access any research you have as I'm trying to learn all I can about my father's involvement in the Pacific. His records were lost and he died in 73. He was one of those that didn't talk about the war. Please sign me up to follow your sight.
All the best of luck,to Clint hayes
As he tremendous amount of work into his projects,
And hopefully he wil do the eager
Beavers story justice ,and all other aeroplane crews in ww2.
What a wonderful web site. A real tribute to these men and their comrades. Al these unescorted B-17/B-24 recon flights in the Bismark or Solomon Seas during 1942-1943 were so risky - so many losses with some crews and planes simply never heard from again.
