Charles Billingsley was the Base Statistical Officer for HQ.
As far as an outstanding experience, I am somewhat at a loss. I was on non-flying status and worked in Base Operations as the Base Statistical Control Officer. My time with the 376th Bombardment Group began April 1943 and continued until the outfit broke-up at Harvard, Nebraska, in the summer of 1945. I was with the Group overseas at Benghazi, Enfidaville, and San Pancrazio. One tends to remember the amusing things that happen. As you well know, there were many periods of sadness too. One event that sticks in my mind was the contest at soccer with the British paratroopers at San Pan. Col. Fellows seemed to be the only person that had an acquaintance with the game.
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.
