Veteran searching for wartime friends

A World War II veteran by the name of Morris Harrell Barber, who lives at St. Clair, MO is searching for two friends from the war years. He would like to contact them if they are living. If they are deceased, he would like to know. One friend was Charles COHEN of Kirksville. The other was Thomas "Tommy" WATTERS of LaPlata, MO, a few miles from Kirksville. In 1942, they were in the CPT (Civilian Pilot Training) program at Rolla, which was later changed to the WTS (War Training Service). Harrell does not have email, but I would be happy to relay any correspondence to him.
