Richard G. Miller Mission August 27, 1942

Aug. 27

Went on mission hunting for a convoy _ didn't have much luck due to faulty navigation by lead ship, Maj. Fennell. Had 10 ship formation and at last minute, 2 planes spotted convoy and headed for it. The rest of us couldn't get it over the radio and blissfully followed our flight leader - the two planes missed and we bombed the Med. Maj. Fennell completed his fiasco by dropping his bombs thru his bomb bay doors; it was his bombardiers' fault, but still---The mission was poorly planned and helped establish the second rate quality we have in charge here. Then when we got back, there was severe criticism of the 2 planes that broke formation to bomb the target _ just another situation I don't get. This mission was the first one on which Wilcox was pilot; he did O.K. was nervous and the two of us really sweated things out on landing and take-off. Col. Mickey showed himself again when he refused to let Major Nero come to the briefings to pep up the bombardiers; no explanation, but just refused.


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.
