Henry M. Showalter

My grandfather was on a B-24 shot down over Italy . Thanks to this website I found which plane(42-40110 Pink Lady - shot down July 16), and crew (513th Squadron). He had amazing stories about his time as a POW. One of the relics he had was a book with a list of all the names of POWs at the camp he was in. This book was used during the Nuremberg trials. He passed June 10, 2004 in Huron, SD.

Great story. Can you tell us his rank and position of service in the plane? Is there a copy of the book he kept? Thank you!

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
