Roger Arendsee the mission of August 15, 1944.

Roger Arendsee notes on the mission of August 15, 1944.

Beaches of Southern France as cover for invasion. Whole 15th Air Force took part. Took off during the night. Saw plane #42 Blow up at end of runway. All men were killed. Seven planes of the 47th wing blew up that night saw one other one blow up.

Beachhead was covered by clouds, and we got there a few seconds too late to drop our 40 hundred pounders. Saw all kinds of planes. B-26 - 25 - 17 - dive bombers - Hellcats - etc. No flak and no fighters at all. We had been scheduled to fly # 42. We think it may have been sabotage. [It was not}


The website 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.
