Information about a WW2 woman pilot

This an open answer to Robert, a visitor to my hub: First Filipino woman commercial pilot ...

Some 3 months back, a certain Robert through the Comment Section of the above-cited hub dropped a few lines, implying that I furnished him vital and relevant information about a certain Lt. Col. Martha L. Cross, WW2 cargo aircraft pilot who may have served in Burma.

This is his actual comment/request:

Robert (3 months ago)

Attempting to gather information about Lt. Colonel Martha L. Cross A-215192.

She may have been a pilot on cargo aircraft in Burma during WWII.

When there are requests, I tried by all means to satisfy them, to answer them because I know they mean it, they’re waiting for it. It is likewise my feeling when I request a favor. I wait and wait for it.

Right away, upon reading Robert’s request, I google the internet for quite a lengthy period, looking for relevant data in answer to his request. I failed. The answers I got were inconsistent. How will Robert know that I’ve worked on his request? Write him, but how? He left no forwarding address.

So water pass the bridge for 3 months.

Then, today, like a bolt from the blue, I recall his request. Typing the keywords in the search bar, google automatically brought forth the vital information needed:

  • Site: Air Force Women Officers Associated
  • Home: In Memoriam
  • Data: I have summarized, out of 384 deceased AFWOA members as of February 10, 2011, under topic In Memoriam, the name MARTHA L. CROSS, Lt. Col., USAF, Retired, appeared.

For details, You may e-mail AFWOA at AFWOA dot ORG postal mail to Air Force Women Officers Associated, P. O. Box 780155, San Antonio Texas 78278.

Robert or any relative of the deceased woman pilot who still need this information may refer to the following URL: In Memoriam

I did this because there’s no other way, Robert. You didn’t affix your e-mail address.

Long time coming, but I appreciate your efforts to locate information about my aunt, Lt. Colonel Cross.

      I drop a leave a response wnveheer I appreciate a post on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is a result of the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And after this article Getting the Marketing Right! Taking the Pain & Frustration Out of Marketing Chris Bloor Official Blog. I was excited enough to drop a thought I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be only me or do a few of the comments appear like written by brain dead folks? And, if you are posting on other social sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list every one of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
