Carey Brewster, c 1941
     First Lieutenant Howard Carey Brewster was born on 13 April 1918 in Ruston, Lincoln, Louisiana, USA.1 He married Kate Eileen Donnell, daughter of Lemuel Alexander Donnell and Henrietta Marion Knipp, on 6 February 1943 at First Presbyterian Church in Warrensburg, Missouri, USA. First Lieutenant Howard Carey Brewster died in combat on 6 June 1944 at Lanquetot, Le Vrétot, Bricquebec, Normandy, France, at age 26.2 He was first buried in the St. James temporary cemetery then moved to Plot D, Row 22, Grave 36 of the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at St Laurent-Colleville, France.
     First Lieutenant Howard Carey Brewster received his degree from Louisiana Technical College in 1941.1 On 6 January 1941, he enlisted in the National Guard and became a Sergeant in the Coast Artillery Corps.3 He was awarded his wings in 1942 after basic pilot training in San Antonio, Texas. He moved to Dalhart, Texas for glider pilot training where he met Kate, who was teaching Home Economics at the Dalhart High School.4 He and Kate Eileen Donnell were moved from base to base - from Sedalia, Missouri to Fort Wayne, Indiana, back to Sedalia, then to Fort Pope, North Carolina, then back to Fort Wayne. Kate is quoted as "We had our clothes, a few pots and pans, and our youth. So moving was no chore."4 On their first wedding anniversary, he deployed to England and was attached to the 82nd Airborne Division for further training.4
First Lieutenant Howard Carey Brewster was a glider pilot with the 437th Troop Carrier Group of the 9th Air Force and was the operations officer for the 84th and 86th Squadrons.
The account of his final mission has been researched at Fold 3 at Ancestry.com and is summarized below:
On D-Day, June, 6, 1944 during Mission Detroit, Mission #28 his CG4 Waco-type glider ... departed Ramsbury, United Kingdom, being towed by C47-A flown by pilots Lt Myers and Lt Frederick.
His co-pilot was Flight Officer Leslie A. Reynolds also of the 84th Troop Carrier Squadron. The passengers were Sgt. Raynor M. Wilson and Pvt. Lecil A Drummond, both of the 80th Anti Aircraft Battalion.
Their mission was to transport a jeep, anti-tank ammunition, and other equipment to Ste-Mère-Eglise, about 5 miles inland from Utah Beach.
In an investigation (Missing Air Crew Report #10890), the tow pilots believed Carey Brewster's glider was either "...released or shot off about 16 miles from the landing zone. This meant that the glider landed in enemy territory with few, if any, friendly troops in the vicinity."
The report also states that the landing glider struck the top of an apple tree at the landing, killing the pilot. The copilot was hospitalized and eventually returned to England with amnesia. The enlisted men were both killed in combat within 10 days of D-Day.2
