TSgt Young's 10th combat sortie targeted the Salzburg, Austria Marshalling Yards on February 27, 1945. After serving as a fill-in on a few missions after his original crew went MIA on February 7th, Young now was assigned to the Lt Ehrenberg crew on a full time basis. Young added these comments for this mission, "Flak was 5,000 feet low and to the right. The Old Swede John's Deere was slow and headed to Foggia, but we got back to base OK."
