Samuel D. Rose - Mission June 24, 1943

June 24 we went to Sedes airfield, Solonika Greece. No fighters or A/A fire, its what we called a milk run. When we got home we landed in a dust storm, the wind came off the desert and brought a horde of grasshoppers. They got in everything, tents, clothes, planes and when we flew up to alt. the grasshoppers all got cold and fell down on the floor. By the time we landed they had crawled back up the walls. The beach and water was full of them for about a week then disappeared. A short time before the English bombed and Italian convoy just over the horizon. It was dark, we heard and saw the flashes of bombs. The next day dead sailers, crates of stuff and gunky oil washed up on our beach.


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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
