    Default Danes enlisting for USAAF service

    A large number (appr. 675) of Danish born men not yet US citizens enlists in the US Army during the Second World War. Among these I have information that 4 is in USAAF service, cf.
    http://www.danishww2pilots.dk/articles.php?id=36

    Apart from these four Jens A Norgaard (17029105) is born in the Danish West Indies in 1916 shortly before the transfer of the island to United States. On D-Day he is the lead pilot of the Marauder attacks on Utah beach supporting the landing. He is then a U.S. Citizen, cf.

    Any further information on the mentioned servicemen, would be welcome.

    Regards
