Searching for information on our father Ernest J. Bartholomew, who was a member of the 509th Composite Group. He had washed out from flight school and was assigned to the 509th, we think as a flight engineer. We think there was a training flight over Texas where everyone had to bail out and Dad may have bailed out of order. We know he suffered a ruptured appendix from bailing out and then think he may have been reassigned to some doctor because he bailed out of order. My brother tried to get his service records from St. Louis but they said there had been a fire which destroyed them.
