Mother Receives Word Son Killed In Action

Albert Peter Rybarczyk, aviation radio man, 2/c, U.S.N.R., has been reported as killed in action, according to a letter received yesterday by his mother, Mrs. Sophia Rybarczyk, 607 Pearl street, from James Forrestal, secretary of the Navy. He was reported missing in action Sept. 17, 1944. Albert, who was 22, was assigned to an aircraft carrier in the Pacific, and at the time of his loss, was on a three-man plane making a bombing mission of Babelthaup island, in the Palau islands group, on Sept. 7, 1944. The plane was to blow up an ammunition dump, and apparently went in to close, and was damages in the explosion, later crashing into the sea, with no sign of the three-man crew, of pilot gunner and Albert, the radio man. His mother received a letter from his commanding officer shortly after the accident, giving her all available details. Albert, who had been overseas four months, enlisted in January, 1942. He had been graduated the previous year from St. Joseph Catholic high school, where he had been active in sports, including football, basketball and track. He was employed by the Clark equipment Co., in Buchanan, before entering the service. Albert is survived by a brother and two sisters, in addition to his mother. The are: Norbert, a fireman 1/c, in the Navy, stationed in the Pacific; Theresa and Mary Ann at home. (The News-Palladium, Benton Harbor, MI, Wednesday, October 3, 1945, p. 5, Col. 5)
