Thaddeus C. Kulpinski

Another visitor to this site contacted me with some historical information on one of the 417th members, Thaddeus C. Kulpinski.  I got in touch with the reader and he provided me a copy of a Christmas Greeting card that Thaddeus sent to his parents.








Thaddeus, “Ted”, Kulpinski was an RO and an original member of the 417th NFS.  Here he is in a group photo of the original members…

…And a shot of him from when he was in prep school prior to the war.








Enjoy, and keep those photos and memories coming!



Reader looking for relatives of Clarence Fuller

Hello readers – I’ve been away on holiday for a bit and while I was away, I received a request from a reader who is looking to contact any relatives of Clarence K Fuller.  Clarence died in action on 1/20/1944 and was part of the 417th Night Fighter group.

If you can help, please drop me an email via the contacts page on this website and I will put you in touch with the person who made the inquiry.

Kind Regards,
