Andree Borrel
Hello JL

You created a page for Andree Borrel and it's good she is not forgotten . She was a brave lady .
But you have some mistakes in your story . I've been looking at Andree's life and you might like to change your page and use this .................

Andrée Borrel Born 18 November 1919
Yvelines Paris France

Died ( Murdered ) 6th July 1944 Age 24
Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp in Alsace


Unwilling to accept France’s defeat to Germany in 1940 Andrée worked for the French Resistance around Perpignan in Vichy France helping the Resistance to smuggle Allied airmen out of France .
The group was uncovered in December 1941 and she had to flee to Portugal where she worked for the Free French Propaganda Office .
In April 1942 she escaped to England where she signed up with the French section of the Special Operations Executive ( the SOE ) .
At night-time on September 24 1942 Andrée was parachuted into France with another French agent Lise de Baissac . Andrée was the first female agent to be parachuted into occupied France. She landed near to the Loire River where she was picked up by members of a resistance group.
Borrel knew Paris very well so she joined a group there run by Francis Suttill who was so impressed by Borrel’s work that in Spring of 1943 she became second in command of the group. They committed sabotage , coordinated in bringing in weaponry and recruited helpers to the group.
In June 1943 the Gestapo caught up with this group – almost certainly because of a betrayal . Several members – including Suttill and Borrel – were arrested and interrogated .
Borrel was put in Fresnes Prison south of Paris . Conditions were horrific Torture was commonplace.
After a year – in May 1944 – Borrel and 3 other female prisoners were moved to the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp in Alsace.
On July 6th 1944 all 4 were to be executed with injections of phenol and then incinerated in the crematorium at the camp . However there is much evidence that Borrel recovered as she was being pushed into the gas ovens and she put up some fierce resistance before being pushed alive into the gas flames. She was 24 .
Later the doctor who gave the injections and the camp executioner were executed for war crimes.

I see this memorial has his birth year listed as 1963, but his family has a facebook page for him with his date of birth as 1 May 1971.

Charles McKee
Chuck McKee was a friend of mine; I met him while we were both stationed in Munich in the mid 1970s and ran into him again in 1979 and 1980 at Ft Huachuca and DLI. If you added up all the hours we spent together over the years, it would amount to one afternoon. I knew him well enough to like and respect him. His death stunned me. For the first time in my life, a name on a casualty list was not an abstraction; it was connected to a face, a voice, a personality. My nephews went to high school with Navy SEAL Michael Murphy; Mike Murphy and Chuck McKee were both alumni of Penn State.

Kenneth Bissett
I would like to read more about Kenneth Bissett. You mentioned those who wanted to do so can connect with the "More about Ken" link. However, you neglected to mention just HOW one may do that. Unlike with your bio contacts, there is no highlighted section to lead one to the link.

Jay Carven
Hi. Just wanted to let you know that Jay Carven (victim of TWA 800) was not "body lost/not recovered". His body was recovered on 25 July, 1996 and he was buried at St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church in Hickory, Harford County, Maryland. Could you change his burial on his listing? Also, his mother's body was also recovered and buried on the same day, same place. It was a double funeral. Thanks so much.
