Moosbierbaum, Austria

8 -500 lb. bombs 2 delayed action bombs

24,000 feet altitude

Target covered by smoke from smoke pots. Vienna also covered -very clever. Formations split up-- our box bombed Parndorf airdrome. Knocked out two hangers and work shops. Very good bombing. I saw flashes of flame come through roof of one hanger. Formation caught flak over Moosbierbaum. It was all behind us. I saw one feeble puff of flak under ship. Nose gunner didn't see any escort

P-38's and P-5l’s sweated fighters out that mission. Worked on ball turret for over an hour. 253 bombers-- 149 escort. One bomber lost.

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.
