Hugh E. McGowan Jr.

(Beverly Hills, Michigan)

My father was incredibly proud of his service to our country and of the incredible crew he flew with during WWII.

I would love to hear more from surviving veterans and/or their families.

My father, Hugh E. McGowan Jr., was in the first row far right - wearing his flight jacket.

My father lived in Michigan his entire life. He did travel a good deal for work + spent time in Tx in Airforce training.

Did your father come from or ever live in Freehold New Jersey? If so, a friend of mine owns his 1941 Buick!

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.
