    Default HELP !!looking for vet's phone number

    Hello boys!
    You know that i am a gooooood boy......
    When you receive this kinda letter...
    I need the help of the American members here to find a phone number,or at least an adress.It is quite difficult for us to find for free a phone number in the States,so it's why i would like you to track:
    Mr Billy E Knowles,born 1925 in Lauderdale county,MS,enlisted in Middlesborro Kentucky,
    I believe ,if he's still alive,that he could live in Greenville,MS...

    I think we have something that belonged to him....

    This time,i'd like to do it without the US Embassy,June the 6th is approaching ,ibelieve they will have better to do...
    I think we have something that belonged to him....
    Thank you!

    Hi Seb,

    I sent you the contact info for who I think is the vet's wife... hopefully not widow...

    If it would be easier, perhaps I could help by contacting her?

    Dear Gizmo,thanks for the help!!I've read your PM
    It appears that,if i understood correctly,Billy E Knowles died in 2003,and Ethel is his widow,if i'm correct,but i'm french,so......
    If you are to contact her,the only real personal and private souvenir she could find to confirm he was the right man,could be the description of the shape of his chain bracelet,not really common,imo...
    I copy you the link to MR Knowles's datas at NARA..
    NARA - AAD - Display Full Records - Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca. 1938 - 1946 (Enlistment Records)

    Hi Seb,

    Please, call me Joe!

    I am not quite following you... I would be glad to contact her, but I am not sure exactly what you want me to say to her. What did you find that you are trying to return to her, and where did you find it?

    Nice bit of digging, Eric! Looks like I nailed it with his widow. I think this is all pretty exciting! Glad I can help do the right thing.
