Operation "Jungle Jewel"
2LT Warren Maxon
Panama December 13, 1944
The weather on this day was like every other day in Panama;
On this day three P-39 Q Airacobra A/C left France Field, Panama,
Locals, hunting for wild game, stumbled across a crashed A/C with weapons in the jungle.
The unit knew it was a P-39 Q Airacobra at once. The tail no. 42-80880 was clear.
Unfortunately, the body of 2Lt. Maxon was not found.
The Operation was called "Operation Jungle Jewel".
The team believed that 2LT Maxon went down with the A/C and died.
2LT Warren Maxon was born in Jewell, Iowa, on July 10, 1924.
