Ben Kentons visit to Terrell

Earlier this year I exchanged emails with Ben Kenton from the United Kingdom. Mr. Kenton was planning a trip to the Dallas area and wanted to visit the burial place of his cousin Vincent Cockman while here. Airman Cockman was killed during a training mission while stationed at #1 BFTS in Terrell during WWII and is buried at Oakland Memorial Park. Unfortunately, I could not get off work when when Mr. Kenton visited, so I didn't get to meet him. He did send me pictures of his visit to Terrell. Thanks for the pictures Ben, I hope you enjoyed your short time here and make it back someday.
