TSgt Young's 16th combat sortie hit the Landshut, Germany Marshalling Yards on March 19, 1945. He noted, "Carried 100 pounders, two to a rack. Saw the bombs hit in a string as the forty hit buildings, homes, and gardens near the edge of the rail yard and over to the other side of the yard. Our altitude was only 16,000 feet with a cabin temperature of negative 15 degrees. No flak. Number 60 was a very good acting ship. It made a fuel record of 258 gallons per hour."

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.
