Staff Sgt. Donald E. Blake Silhou10

*An after action report stated that Blake died in the dingy with Lt. Scott after the plane ditched. I is unclear if his death was caused by wounds from anti aircraft fire or head injuries sustained in the ditching. The dingy was riddled with bullet holes and Lt. Scott was unable to keep his body afloat after the dingy capsized.
