Happy 100th Birthday EdwarD e. St Germain! 25 October 2019
Edward E. St Germain is the last of 4 brothers who served in WW2. He was a P47 pilot and his brothers served as a tank commander, a sub mariner and on a naval ship.
As an Army Aircorp 2nd Lt in the 9th Air Force , 36th FG, 23sq. has served as a ground attack pilot and flew 72 combat missions primarily in Belgium and included the Battle of the Bulge. He was engaged in air to air combat, shooting down several German fighters, and after having a couple of his own P47’s damaged in battle, was forced to crash land more than once remarkably surviving without any injury’s.
Recently his war record was submitted to the Library of congress by the Sonoma County Air Museum, however because of a fire in the military records room many files were lost and recreating them would be difficult at best. Below are some pictures and military documents confirming his service.
Is was my great honor in joining others in celebrating the sacrifice of “The Greatest Generation”.
