The three McConnell brothers received B-24 transition training at Alamagordo right after their commissioning on 04 JAN 1943. McConnell AFB was named after two of them. One of them, Thomas Luverne McConnell was KIA on 10 JUL 1943 somewhere in the Guadalcanal area. Anyone know any details? Haven't been able to find the MACR on this.
