Feb 26, 1945 Dear Mrs. Spangler, I wish to extend my sincere sympathy in the loss of your son. It surely is hard to give up & believe they are really gone. I'm the wife of Lt. DeGarmo, one of the pilots on the ship which your son was abroad. I wrote to Washington and got the names & emergency addresses of the crew members that were abroad the aircraft with my Husband, 1st Lt. Melvin G DeGarmo. Your son Corp. Peter W. Spangler Jr. 1311 88 44 was one of the members.
