OTHER REMARKS--My third mission as volunteer with another crew and more problems. The tail gunner had difficulty with oxygen supply. Took portable bottle ... couldn't get his system to work, so pilot made decision to turn back less than an hour from Tripoli (we were at 23000' at the time). Other crews also had problems and only 5 planes reached the target.


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.
