My uncle Ralph Vincent Shaffer, probably taken at Pampa, Texas during flight training in 1943. His B-24 "Ginger" crashed near Saarbruecken Germany on 26 August, 1944 after being hit by flak over Ludwigshafen Germany. As pilot, he was the last to bail out; other crew members stated that his chute opened normally, but no trace of him was ever found. | Click image for Comments. | Home
