I assume you've read "Fighting Grasshoppers"? It is the history of the L4's and L5's in US Army service in WW2. I also gives the locations of some of the former airfields.

Finding some of these strips is going to be hard because very few of them were in use for more than a year and virtually none had any permanent buildings.

Good Luck
