February 22, 1945

On February 22, our target was marshaling yards at Neumarket, Germany in plane number twenty, named "Deanna Dawn," at a low altitude of fourteen thousand feet. Bomb load was eight five hundred pounders. Developed some engine trouble over the Alps Mountains, and at this altitude they looked mighty close, made it to target bombed through thick clouds, flak was inaccurate, no holes in the plane and made it home in eight hours and fifteen minutes.
