Thank you for visiting our web site. We are proud
to take the lead in preserving a place in American History for the thousands of men and women
who, against seemingly impossible odds, achieved technological brilliance
through their relentless pursuit of atomic energy; a feat that ultimately
brought about the end of World War II.
Below is a recap of the veteran names
presently in our database. We obtain the names from several
sources. If we have located a veteran or heard from a family
member, we hi-light the veteran's name in "yellow" and add his or her
name to our
Veteran Archives section where we expand the information about the
veteran to include photos, documents, and personal memories. With
the permission of the veteran or family member, we will make the
information available to the Library of Congress as part of their
Veterans History Project. "Click" on the NUMBER under the heading
"# of Veterans" to proceed to the Veteran Tables.
For those veteran names hi-lited in
green, we have a "profile" available >>>>
For those veteran names hi-lited in blue,
we have a "photo only" available >>>>
* Compilation of the
names of veterans of the 509th Composite Group would not have been
possible without the help of Paul Metro, a member of the Radar Section of
the 393rd Bombardment Squadron on Tinian Island.
** Project Alberta was an odd
mixture of Army Air Force, Army SED, Navy, and Civilian personnel who
worked on the bomb assembly and acted as scientific observers. Even
though they were not officially a part of the 509th, they fell under the
509th Command on Tinian Island.
