My grandfather was Willaim V Okoniewski. I can't find any pictures of him. He was not KIA just wanted to see if anyone could point me in the right direction.

Hi Look at the message I sent on searching
the Hellcat News. Just below yours. But click instead on photographs rather than the Hellcat News.

Also, on the left side of this page, click on 2713 Division photos. Go to the 714th.

Contact me via the message board for other

There is quite a bit about him in past HellCat News. I didn't look through all of them. HCN Dec 1960 has a picture of Mary as Miss Hellcat. HCN Jan 1999 has a story of his heroics and a picture. HCN May 1993 has a story and picture of two sons - one a DR. and one a LT.Cmdr.Use link from Mike Woldenberg or supply an email address and I will scan and email you the articles.
