Thank you for the postings on my father as a B-24 pilot. As you have noted, he died in 1993, having been hit by a car while walking. I will have to look through his flight log more. He was a command pilot in SAC and retired in 1970 after serving his final years with the IG at Norton AFB, at Lockbourne AFB, and wing commander at Little Rock AFB, Goose Air Base (Labrador) and his final year as a staff officer with the SR-71's at Beale AFB. He went into real estate in San Diego in retirement. My mother told me at one time that he was the youngest O-6 in the USAF. The passport photos I found show him in the Guam passport in 1951 as a Lt. Col (or maybe Major) and as a Col. in probably 1965 or so.

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
