About the site

Welcome to my site.  This site is dedicated to the men of the 118th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron.  My grandfather, Earl J. Davis, was a pilot with the 118th.  This website is a result of my research into my grandfather's service.  I inherited all of his items from WWII and knew very little about his service.  Over the last few years I have been contacting members of the squadron and inquiring about my grandfather.  From these contacts, I have developed some wonderful friendships and a better understanding and appreciation of what the men endured.

Some of the men have been kind enough to allow me to scan their pictures from the war.  You can view these pictures by clicking on an individual's name in the roster.  The link to the photos will be below the biography.   I will be adding more pictures and documents, so check back often.

I am always looking for more pictures of the 118th.  If you have any to share, please send me an email at chris@118trs.com .  I will also add a page if you have a picture and a biography.
