He was my neighbor, an example of what a good man was, and an American hero. A member of the greatest generation. I was lucky to meet your acquaintance sir. Godspeed and tailwinds.

On behalf of the 99th Bomb Group Historical Society (BGHS) Board of Directors, Officers and membership we send his family and friends our sympathy and condolences. Please know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. The 99th BGHS recognizes and appreciates the contributions Bill made with his service to his country, and with the 99th BG as a contributing member, officer, and President of the 99th BGHS. Our 99th Bomb Group Historical Society (BGHS) President, William (Bill) Crockett, a 99BG 347BS veteran flew 9 combat missions as a B-17G Flying Fortress radio operator in the Mediterranean theater from February 12, 1945 until late April 1945.
Bill's wise and sage advice and comments over the years helped us continue to serve the 99th BG Veterans, our membership, researchers, and family and friends of the 99th BG veterans.
Our thoughts are with his family in his final mission as he joins the 99thBG Veterans who have gone before him. We hope that his family is comforted knowing that he is free from pain and that the 99th BGHS will keep his memory alive in our hearts. Gary T. Staffo, 2nd Vice President 99th BGHS
