Today, 15 January 2013, we remember First Lieutenant William Wyatt Patton Jr. of Stalla, Missouri, born on 10 January 1918 in Stella, Newton County, Missouri and Missing in Action since 15 January 1945 in La Longueville, France, a Pilot in the 560th Bombardment Squadron of the 388th Bombardment Group (Heavy).

On February 22, 2001, 56 years later a French farmer was digging a drainage ditch when he discovered a P-51 Mustang. Upon excavation, it was discovered a W.W. II pilot wearing dog tags of Wm. W. Patton Sr.
Memorial Services for Lt. Patton were held Friday, November 9, 2001 at Clark Funeral Home Chapel of Memories of Neosho, Mo. then there was a procession to the National Cemetery in Springfield, Mo. where full military honors where conducted at the graveside services.

He is commemorated at the Walls of the Missing at the Ardennes American Cemetery and Memorial, buried at Springfield National Cemetery, Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, USA and information about him can be found at the Fields of Honor database.
