Pasquale J Roderiguez

(Wilmington, Delaware )

My father, Pat(as he was called) and his wife Adeline(my mother) raised 4 children after the war in their hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He worked for Philadelphia Steel and Wire for many years before retiring in 1985. He was a good and just man, an awesome Father and a great citizen. Devoted to his family and his Catholic faith. Unfortunately, Dad passed away in 1990 after a brief battle with stomach cancer. He always said that having survived so many missions during the war( 30 plus I believe) that he would never set foot on an airplane ever again in life- and he never did! Rest In Peace Dad and thank you for what you did to secure freedom for so many.
P.S. We do have photos of Pat and the flight crew but we need to get them back from other family members. Once we do we will post.

Served with your Father
by: James Roderiguez

Hello. I remember seeing a similar photo when I was younger of my Father on a camel. He had told me that he spent time in Egypt during the war. I am trying to track down family photos to go through them and catalog them. Thank you for letting me know about your Father! If you could send me a copy of your picture I would absolutely appreciate it! I believe we have my Father’s war records but since my Mother passed I am not sure where they ended up. My email address is

Thanks

Our fathers were crew mates
by: Elizabeth Brandt

My father, Vincent L. Ambrosas, and your dad were crew mates and friends. My father died in 1994 but I remember hearing your father’s name when I was a child as my father reminisced about the war. I have a picture of my father and your dad on camels in Cairo during an R&R. I will be happy to copy for you.
I am particularly interested in verifying my father’s missions.if you have any records I would be appreciative and also the photos you have of the crew.

376 ARCHIVES

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.
