This is Peter, he was in the Army Air Force during WWII.
This is the info that Iggy found out about Peter. Thanks Iggy!!
Peter's name is Lithuanian.
Stubovage, Peter J.
Date of Birth: 02-Jul-1910
Date of Death: 12-Jun-1971
Scerbavicius: Sgt AAF WWII
He is buried in St. Vincent & St. Louis Cemeteries, Girardville, PA. His family changed their names from Scerbavicius to Stubovage, presumably when they moved from Lithuania (Poland and Russia disputed territory). The census taker in 1920 recorded their name as Stutovage.
Peter's father was Dominikas Scerbavicius (b. 1870 in "Russia", d. 1956) and his mother was Anna Scerbavicius (b. 1883 in "Russia", d. 1948). Peter had two brothers, Adam Scerbavicius (b. 30 Sep 1900 in "Russia" d. Jun 1968) and Dominic G (Jr.) Stubovage (ex-Scerbavicius) (b. 04 Aug 1905 born in "Russia" and changed his name d. Jun 1974) as well as a sister Marcella Stubovage (b. 26 Mar 1907 born in PA d. Aug 1991) Never married.
Brother Adam was drafted into WW One. Dominic Jr. appears to have been to young for WWI and too old for WWII
Peter J served in the Army Air Force in WWII and was a Sargent. He was based at the Albuquerque Army Air Base at least long enough to get his picture taken. He may of worked there during the duration - or trained to fly bombers there and gone to Pacific.
Albuquerque Army Air Base was renamed Kirtland Army Air Field in February of 1942.
World War Two or WWII lasted from 1939 to 1945.
Sadly, Peter seems to have had no living relatives, or offspring. He is a truly a Old Forgotten Soldier. We don’t know who Arthur is..the person that this photo was intended for..perhaps a fellow soldier..a real friend.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
Here is a photo that Iggy took of Peter’s Service Marker. Thanks Iggy!
