1st Lt Edward Kudella
Intelligence Officer

Born: 24 March 1910
Died: 24 Dec 1992

From the little bit that is known Edward Kudella was in the intelligence section and responsible for debriefing the combat crews after their missions.

He left active duty immediately after the war but remained in the reserves and attained the rank of Major before he left in the mid to late 50's.

He worked for the federal government until retirement in the early 70's.

He had a long and active retirement, primarily golf and gardening until the first of a series of strokes knocked him down in '89 and eventually took him in '92.

He and his wife, Marge were married for 49 devoted years when he passed, she succumbed to cancer in 2000 after a long battle.

The above information came from Jim Kudella, Edward's son. Jim is interested in hearing from any friends and comrades from his father's WWII days to learn about his father's service. You may contact him by clicking here
