Dominic P Mainieri


Dominic P Mainieri served as a bombardier with the 448th Bomb Group. He was part on one of the original crews of the group. The first aircraft he was assigned to was B-24 41-29191, which was piloted by Second Liuetenant Jack Parker

His family remember him with these words:
'Not only was he a veteran, but an amazing husband, father, uncle, brother, and son. He came out of abject poverty and secured a military career, University education, and had a successful marriage and family life.'

'He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia U.S. To Google him, find your site and his name brought us all to tears with pride and sadness that he is no longer here to enlighten our lives.'
