One of the things I love about Activerain is that I am constantly amazed by the sheer number of people who are reading this site. When I wrote about the Village of Farmingdaleand the issues I am having, I received several emails from others who have had the same experience. When my recent post about Plagarism was posted, I received so MANY personal emails of other Feng Shui Consultants who have had the same issue with the SAME person.
This, then, is a personal request. I have written several times about visiting the Air Force Memorial held in Farmingdale Long Island at Republic Airport as a way to honor my dad, Lt. Colonel Peter F. Provenzale. And I have shown several planes from the wonderful shows put on right here in Farmingdale Long Island New York. I even wrote about a wonderful "Earth Angel" I came across the last time I attended who told me stories and gave me a personal tour of this wonderful Air Force Memorial sponsored by Newsday. Lt. Colonel Peter F. Provenzale, The "Perfect" Dad....by Feng Shui Long Island
Not long ago I received a contact from my cousin who I haven't seen or heard from in a long time. He called to advise me that he had been to the 8th Air Force Group Museum and had found my father's portrait REMOVED. When he went to inquire, THEY FOUND NO RECORD OF MY FATHER HAVING SERVED IN THE AIR FORCE. He was quite alarmed and when he advised me, so was I.

The 8th Air Force Historical Society now has no record of my father who flew in the 351stgroup as Navigator of an airplane named The Argonaut by the pilot with the same name. He actually attended a reunion in 1978 with people he had flown with including Ben Schohan, Roscoe M. Pierson, Ted Randall, and Kenneth Huls. I have all the documentation I need, however, this is NOT an issue with the 8th Air Force Historical Society, it is an issue with the Federal Government and will likely take a long time to resolve.
Again, I went to Farmingdale Long Island Air Force Museum located at Republic Airport while they were having the Air Show. This time with my own personal "mission." I went to see if my Angel was there and sure enough I saw him, explained what I had discovered and he was almost as upset as I was. Lt. Colonel Peter F. Provenzale was awarded, among other things, The Silver Star, The Distinguished Flying Cross, 3 Air Medals, Purple Heart, 2 Air Force Longevity Service Award Ribbons, Presidential Unit Citation, American Defense Service Metal, National Defense Service Metal and Armed Forces Reserve Metal.

I was told that my best hope in getting this resolved would be to find someone named GUS - Gutave Nathan in Yonkers New York. I have not been able to find any other information. I apologize for a post of a purely personal nature, will advise AR that I do NOT want points for it and please don't feel compelled to comment. I am just hoping with the Google Power of Activerain, someone can assist me.
Peter Provenzale was born and lived in Brooklyn New York. Here with Clark Gable.
