    My uncle Clair Carl was the tail gunner on Baby Butch and I know very little about him. I was born in March of 1945 and I believe he died in 1944. For reason unknown to me I don’t recall my family ever talking about him. They are all gone now. My family was from the Tower City, Pa. area.
    I’m just wondering if any of his crew mates families knew about him, just a long shot. Thanks for your support , Richard Paul
