I spoke to Fred who lived on LI NY, several years ago. He was a F/O. his story was he was assigned to replace another F/O for what reason, I don't remember.

The original F/O was KIA, Fred could have been the killed, if he was not the replacement.

In 495th History there is info on pages 73, 93, 108 and an article "Fire Mission".
He was a Unit Rep for 495th for the HellCat News.
Also he has an oral history on this site.
Do you have any way to contact you? Can't post pictures here.

See my entry on Dec. 31, 2014 on how to research the Hellcat News Archive.

Fred Stillman was the Unit Rep. to the Hellcat News for the 495th. I found no pictures in this archive, but there are
many, many HCN issues with mentions of his name.
