Airman Accounted For From World War II (Sandini, A.)

By DPAA Public Affairs

Army Air Forces Tech. Sgt. Alfred R. Sandini, killed during World War II, was accounted for on Feb. 12, 2019.

In February 1944, Sandini was a member of 22nd Bombardment Squadron, 341st Bombardment Group, and served as a radio gunner aboard a B-25C aircraft. On Feb. 15, 1944, the aircraft he was aboard crashed, most likely due to enemy anti-aircraft fire, near the Do Len Bridge in Thanh Hoa Province, French Indochina, now known as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

DPAA is grateful to the Department of Veterans Affairs for their partnership in this mission.

Sandini's name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at the Manila American Cemetery, an American Battle Monuments Commission site in the Philippines, along with others missing from WWII.
