    Vern joined the Army Air Corps on November 12, 1942. After basic training, Vern's crew was assigned to the 44th Bomb Group, Eighth Air Force. They picked up their B-24 in Lincoln, Nebraska on December 24, 1943, flying it to the British Isles. They remained there, receiving advanced combat training until November 1, 1943. Vern, who was a sergeant, was the tail gunner on the B-24. After many bombing runs, Vern's plane, named "Sharkface," crash landed in England after a bombing run over Germany on March 16, 1944. The crash killed all but four crewmembers and one subsequently died of his injuries, leaving Vern one of the final surviving three crew members.
