2nd LT Rubert Cornay aka: Cornay Crew

by Douglas Jolman
(Kent City, Michigan)

As Rubert Cornay's son I would like to have your records show that there were a total of 11 brave men on that plane on Nov 1 1944.

The Cornay crew was to fly as the last plane in the proposed run and therefore a Combat Photographer was also assigned to photograph the destruction inflicted with the run.

I spent a year trying to identify the 11th man, and I found him but now it is your turn. He did NOT belong to the 376 but rather was assigned from a Photo Unit. He should be recognized and I assumed that was clarified years ago.

Thank You
Doug Jolman

PS: The assignment is in the original OPP order.

The website 376bg.org is NOT our site nor is it our endowment fund.

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.
