In Memoriam
by Jillian Brinkley for Wesley B. Brinkley, Served From 1941 to 1943, Born 10/15/15, Passed On 12/13/43, Honored
Uncle Wes enlisted in the Army on January 17, 1941, almost a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor. He served in the artillery for 7 months before joining the Army Air Corps. When he was commissioned as a 2nd Lt., he wrote home saying, “Am I happy!” He was waiting on his 1st Lt. Commission when he was killed in action. His last letter to his parents on Dec. 8th said how excited he was going to be to get that and it should be there any day now. He was shot down over Germany 5 days later on Dec. 13, 1943.
