George LaRoe mission January 4, 1945

January 4, 1945 Bronzolo, Italy

Received a few flak hits over target.  Bombs made several good strikes.  Our route completely circled the battle lines in Northern Italy.  Carried 16 – 1000 lb bombs.  Diamond made a mistake in fuel transfer and we lost #3 and #4 engines for about half a minute.


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.
