The photo is of a young man who was a cook and stationed in Alaska during the Aleutian campaign. He had requested transfer to air crew active service and on 15 Apr 1943, he borrowed a flight jacket from a gunner and climbed into a B-24 on the runway, just before it took off on a bombing raid, so that he could get a feel of a mission. During that raid, that particular B-24 was shot down and all the crew died. I have been researching the crew, but didn't exactly know how to look into a cook. Would he have been in the Quartermaster Corps? Also, can anyone id the insignia he is wearing? Those two shield-type pins . . .
