Saverio "Chub" Cortese

(Austin, TX, USA)

My grandfather was part of the 376th BG and I believe the 513th Sqadron. His pilot was James Grady. He served as a radio man on a B24 as part of the 15th Air Force. His ID was 17091379 and his title is listed as Radio Operator, 757. I am looking to see if anyone who may know him is still alive and I could potentially speak to them. I know he was shot down at least once, bailed out, and survived. He earned the Air Combat Medal, Purple Heart, etc...

He hailed from Pueblo, Colorado.

Thank you and your family for your fathers service! It would be very fortunate for you to find anyone still alive after this much time has passed! Most of those old boys would be 100 years old at least! I wish you good luck!

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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
