Theodore Carter Brewer
« on: Saturday 02 May 20 10:15 BST (UK) »
Theodore Carter Brewer was born in Illinois 1922
(Known as Ted)
He died in Cortland, Marathon 1976
Parents Helen Frances Carter (of Cortland) and  Wallace Melvin Brewer Snr (of Texas)
He boarded with his brother Wallace Jr in a Military school in either Chicago or California as a boy, then in school, Cortland.
Ted was a Technical Sargent USAAF in WW2 serving with 314th and 62nd TC
Sadly, his Military records were destroyed in the fire.
I do have some details of his Military time.
Married/Divorced Rosalie Whitney
He was involved in an almost fatal car accident sometime around 1957-1963 ďSOMEWHEREĒ.
He was very badly injured.
His mother, with the help of The Red Cross, traced him to Ďa hospital Ď and on discharge some months later, took him back to Cortland where he lived until he passed away.
I need help with 2 things:
Can anyone help me find the details of Tedís accident?
How can I find his log books for his period of service (1942-1945)
Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.
With thanks Beryl

Thanks you, I have all of this.  Iím just hoping for details of Tedís horrific accident and where.
Finding where it took place will fill in another gap in his history.
Many thanks again for your information, Cheers, Beryl

I have trawled newspapers in the USA under Theodore and Carter but never ever found anything on the accident.  :-\

Have you read this :-

Mail a letter or Standard Form (SF) 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records to:

National Personnel Records Center
1 Archives Drive
St. Louis, MO 63138


https://www.archives.gov/personnel-records-center/ompf-access-public

https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/standard-form-180.html

You might have to wait until normal operations resume when the public health emergency has ended.

Stay Safe
Regards
Sandra
