Correspondence from Loved Ones:
I left some comments in your Web site guest book, but I wanted to contact you directly.
My name is Michael Bernard O'Malley. My uncle, 2nd Lt. Bernard Wilson O'Malley, was killed at Naper. My dad, Patrick William O'Malley, was 13 years old at the time. Barney, as his family called him, was 21 at the time of his death.
Prior to joining the AAC, Barney attended the University of Oklahoma at Norman and was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. I've known about how Barney died all my life. My brother had the flag from Barney's casket mounted in his room when we were kids. I've still got Barney's wings, which my grandmother had made into a bracelet that she wore.
I'd like to thank you for your efforts to memoralize the victims of this crash. For years, this was a personal family tragedy to me. Seeing your Web site helped me to understand that my family wasn't alone in suffering, and that other people cared about these pilots, too. You are a credit to your fallen comrades.
If there's ever anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to ask.
