- While death notices at least brought closure, the announcement in April 1945 that Frederick Weber Shantz failed to return after flying a mission over Germany left family and friends hoping that he would be found alive. An investigation following the war, however, revealed that Shantz, along with five other airmen, were killed when their plane was shot down. They were buried together at Amelsbueren, Germany, though a seventh man survived the rest of the war in a POW camp.
