| Robert H. Mooney was my great uncle on my mother's side. I have heard many stories about him and his sacrifice. When I was in Honolulu a few weeks ago, I visited the Punchbowl Memorial grounds and he has a memorial front and center, maybe three rows back. |

| My late wife, who died of breast cancer in 2009, was the niece of Robert H. Mooney. My late mother-in-law and her sister attended the dedication of the rebuilt monument in China in 1993. We have books, videos, and an extensive file of letters from the doctor who treated him before his death.
If we can help anyone with information about Bob, please email us.

| Oddly in alot of my searching on information on the Flying Tigers,this is the first I heard of Robert H. Mooney.
WW2 was one of my favorite studies in school and continues to be today. My favorite fighters of teh time were the P-38 Lightning and the P-40 WarHawk

| Robert Mooney was an alumni of Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington Missouri. He was killed in China in 1942 when he bailed out of his stricken P40. A replica of the Mooney Memorial in China stands outside the Wentworth Memorial Chapel. Inside the chapel is a painting called Mooney's Sacrifice by Roy Grinnell as well as a photograph of Mooney.
The Chapel was dedicated in 1955 and was built with funds raised by Mooney's father in his honor.
