2nd LT Rubert Cornay aka: Cornay Crew
by Douglas Jolman
(Kent City, Michigan)
As Rubert Cornay's son I would like to have your records show that there were a total of 11 brave men on that plane on Nov 1 1944.
The Cornay crew was to fly as the last plane in the proposed run and therefore a Combat Photographer was also assigned to photograph the destruction inflicted with the run.
I spent a year trying to identify the 11th man, and I found him but now it is your turn. He did NOT belong to the 376 but rather was assigned from a Photo Unit. He should be recognized and I assumed that was clarified years ago.
PS: The assignment is in the original OPP order.
