Earl M. Kesler

Dear Sirs,
Thank you very much for the story of Earl M Kessler.
This is because it refutes the accusation made by the communist authorities against a relative of mine, a wealthy factory owner Antal Sorg jr. He was accused of killing the wounded staff of the shot B-24.51151 Without your organization, I would never have been able to regain the honor of my relative. (My relative emigrated, so they couldn’t be convicted him, but even in 2014, it arose that he had not clarified himself.)
The venerable Mr. Kesler did good to others even after his death. A great man!
Gábor Tóth/Hungary

Let me ask that who are the two officer on the photo near the wreckage of 51151. Are they Americans? The photo in this site, and let me ask would it be possible to use that photo in my book? Under what conditions? (I wrtite about the lawsuit of 1945.)

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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
