Sgt, Dominick J. Licari served with the 389th Bombardment Squadron, 312th Bombardment Group out of Gusap Airfield Morobe Province, New Guinea.  He served as a gunner aboard an A-20 Havoc bomber (tail number 42-54082)

While returning froma bombing mission on a Japanese airfield, the aircraft crashed into a mountain in Papua New Guinea on 13 March 1944.  His pilot, 2nd Lt. Valorie Pollard of Monterey, Calif., also was killed, along with four airmen in two other of the mission’s A-20s.  They all slammed into the same jungle-covered mountain in bad weather. (In the Finisterre Range at roughly 10,000'  near Zewan, New Guinea.)

He remained MIA until 2012 when his remains were recovered and identified through DNA testing.

He was interred in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Franfort, New York.
