Surnames: Liston, Wyatt

I have in possession a few misc. documents sent to "Mrs. Alva Liston" by the War Department in 1945. She was residing at 716 N. Arthur Street, Amarillo, Texas. Her husband was awarded posthumously the purple heart. Harold, as he apparently went by, was a pilot "attached to the Chinese American Composite Wing." Apparently his remains were never recovered. A few members of my Wyat line lived in Amarillo at this time but I don't believe there is a connection. I would be willing to pass them to someone who can prove they are Liston related. Not sure how these ever came to be in the family papers.
