Doyle's Heroes

This is the honor certificate posted at the WWII Memorial Website for my mother's first cousin, John J. Doyle. John enlisted in the U.S. Army on 10 July 1941 as a Private. He enlisted in Wilkes-Barre, PA and was assigned to the Regular Army. He was single and had no children. John was killed in Chingkung/Chenkung/Chun King China on November 18, 1943. He was the sole crew member (and a staff sergeant at this point) aboard a C-46-A aircraft piloted by a John A Visk. Their plane dove into the ground on that fateful November day. In the picture below, John is the first one on the left in the first row standing up, earing dark pants and a light t-shirt (next to the child in the baseball jersey).

The honor certificate below is posted on the same Memorial website and it is in honor of Paul M. Doyle, a brother of John. Paul enlisted in Wilkes-Barre PA on 16 Dec 1942. His civilian occupation was listed as a special effects supervisor. He was single with no children and was listed as a Selectee/Enlisted Men.

And Thomas "Frank" Doyle who served in WWI.
