George LaRoe mission February 19, 1945

February 19, 1945 Graz, Austria

Target – Penzinger Goods station.  Turned back yesterday after 5 hrs.  Flying through overcast.  Today we made a very dangerous climb through overcast.  Formation split up.  We started back to field – found a break in ceiling and climbed out.  Finally located our formation.  Target changed to Graz – light accurate flak – hit bomb sight stabelizer.  Delaplaine toggled after a long bomb run.  Missed target but hit a chemical plant.  Eight 500 lbs.

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.
