Alfred E. Berger Mission March 1, 1945

March 1, 1945

On the first of March in a plane named “Blivet” our target was a synthetic oil refinery in Moosbierbaum, Austria, a city about twenty two miles northwest of Vienna. We had some flak enroute, but none over the target, for my fifth combat mission, qualifying me for the Air Medal. Total time was seven hours and thirty minutes.
