Mission 38: August 16, 1944

After posting the mission log book I interviewed my dad. I had a lot of questions about the occurances and the people involved. Dad didn’t enter certain kinds of information in his mission log. He just kept to the facts. On the log I have created hyperlinks to the information below.

“A lot of B-26 got shot down earlier in the war by enemy fighters. Finally, a rule was made that if the formation does not meet up with its fighter escort, that we were expected to turn around and come home to base. This happened a few times. No one challenged those P-51’s! We were always glad to see them.”
