Recently while updating information on Navy Fighter Squadron One Sixty-One (VF-161) I searched the POW Network
for LCDR Earl Paul McBride and noticed there was little information available to you.

Further research led to the discovery of the Navyís Personnel Casualty Report for LCDR McBride and wanted to provide
this information to you for addition to his Page.

Attached is a pdf copy of the casualty message I obtained from the Library of Congress.

I hope this is of assistance to you and I sincerely Thank You for your efforts in making information about our Nationís
POWs available.
