Air Medal    Purple Heart

Avery was co-pilot on B-24D bomber #41-23747 assigned to the 10th Air Force, 7th Bombardment Group, 436th Bombardment Squadron. On July 2, 1943 they were one of a flight of six aircraft en route to bomb the Syriam oil refinery at Rangoon, Burma. After flying for fifteen minutes through heavy clouds, the airplanes broke into the clear in a dispersed formation and only five planes could be accounted for. About fifteen minutes later a radio message was heard "Any B-24D for help." However attempts to establish radio contact got no reply. Enemy fighters were active in the area, so it is presumed that Avery's plane was shot down.
