An Airman's Story: Sergeant John G. MacIntosh Jr.

www.everydaypatriot.com #EverydayPatriot
Sergeant John G MacIntosh Jr grew up in Ohio, working as a stock clerk before joining the U.S. Army Air Services in July 1941.

He trained as a turret gunner and was assigned to the B-24 Liberator Unit, 431st Bomber Squadron, 11th Bomber Group, in the Pacific.

While flying on #42-73018 (I believe it was named "Captain and The Kid") an unknown event disabled the plane, which was last seen off the coast of Truk, the Philippines on July 28, 1944.

Sergeant John G Macintosh Jr is memorialized on the Tablet of the Missing at the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial.
