Hi, thanks for getting back to me! I do not have a war time photo of my grandfather but have attached one of he and my grandmother from 1947 (their wedding photo). All I really know of his service record is that he served from 8-27-1942 to 12-11-1946 and that at some point was a Sgt. at MacDeil Field in Tampa, Fl. Thanks, Ashley Dees Ashley

1942-1946 Was quite a long tour. He must have enlisted in the army air corp before the war and stayed in for the duration. My guess is he trained at MacDeil and was perhaps stationed there until assigned to Stansted England where the 495th was based. You do know he flew in a B-26 Marauder and probably took part in the D-Day invasion. Not being an officer, he was not a pilot or coopilot.
