Paul R. Mayes

Paul R. Mayes 1944

T/Sgt. Paul R. Meyes, service # 6578609 received his Non commission rank directly from the Congress of the United States of America.
Paul was the Armament gunner and photogapher on My Akin? , 450th BG(H), 721st Squadron. We were very fortunate having Paul on our crew. Paul had the experience of combat and I firmly beleive that he taught our crew many things, all good.
Paul was stationed in Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. He stated that his pilot got no more then Approximately 400 feet off the tarmac when they were shot down by a Japanese Zero. Paul suffered quite a bit of trauma and consequently had a silver plate implanted into his skull.
That is all he would tell anyone. I do know he had to sign a waiver to continue going into combat.

Our crew and I thank God to this day that we were fortunate enough to have him on our crew.
