George Uhrich was my Uncle. There is an incredible amount of information on this website documenting the missions. If you go to the George Uhrich crew page I found the Gunner Notes by David Tunno.
David A. Tunno, Mission November 15, 1942
"1300 Tripoli. Bombed South of Benghazi. Bad Weather. Pursuit shot down. Lt Wilcox and Crew shot down by pursuits.

Name is incorrect?

The pilot who saw my uncle's plane go down was Richard W. Ulrich. Is your George the same person?
Thank you for posting.

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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
