My grandfather, John Margonelli, served with your dad. I have the same picture of him standing next to the Gentle Annie, it was in our hometown newspaper. I swear my grandfather said it wasn’t his plane though? I have his mission list, 50 flown between March and June 1944.

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.
