Carole Lombard and Clark Gable were a cute all American, Hollywood couple!! They married in 1939.
But then on January 16, 1942, Carole Lombard was on a plane to head back home. She had been selling War Bonds to help her country. The plane she was on, along with her mother too, crashed on the side of a mountain. Everyone on the plane died instantly. Clark Gable was noted as inconsolable and decided to join the Army to serve his country too. His wife, Lombard asked him many times to join before. Even though Clark Gable was married, twice more in fact, he was buried next to Lombard.
