Rich,
I am so sorry to hear of your grandfather's "Last Flight".  I have just finished reading the book "Blown To bits....20,000 Feet Over Ploesti" detailing his last mission.  I will get back to you with any and all info I have regarding him.

Joel

 Hi Rich,
 My dad flew one mission as co-pilot with your grandfather on 5/6/44. Also I have a "Special Orders" from Lockbourne Army Air Base dated 10/5/43 listing your grandfather as being transferred to the 18th Replacement Wing, Second Air Force, Salt Lake City "reporting not later than 2359 19 Oct 43".
 Let me know if you want a copy.
