Bill Coene -- same as William George Coene

On a FaceBook group that tries to unite old photos with the correct families I saw this photo of a flight crew taken at a training base.

The contributor Cheri Hobbs Leonard wrote in the group Family Treasures Found :

Photo 1 of 2 taken Herington Army Airfield, Herington KS. Photo 2 identifies the airmen. It is likely that at least one of these men was from Massachusetts as the annotation is in my Mother's writing and the photo was among her possessions.
