James Collison mission July 5, 1943

JULY

Monday 5

Messina

Today our mission went out and what a time we had. I have never seen so much flak in one place in my life-looked like we were approaching a thunderstorm and believe me we did. I am very thankful that we came out of it unscathed. I was very nervous and upset before and after the mission. Tried to write Penny a letter-but it wasn't very good. There was no mail today but expect some in a couple of days. Went for a swim ...... I pray that the mission which is to go out tomorrow is a success. .....

376 ARCHIVES

At the 2017 reunion, the board approved the donation of our archives to the Briscoe Center for American History, located on the University of Texas - Austin campus.

Also, the board approved a $5,000 donation to add to Ed Clendenin's $20,000 donation in the memory of his father. Together, these funds begin an endowment for the preservation of the 376 archives.
