February 21, 1945
We flew to Vienna again today. Bombed P.F.F. Though I could see the ground, Alt. was 26,300. Takeoff 0850 - Target 1345 landing 1655 - Total 7:55 hrs. We made a run over some place North of Vienna then closed our doors and got on Vienna itself. The flak was heavy, but I saw only one burst. It was as I looked out the window right after bombs away - scared me plenty so I threw out more chaff. We flew with the 514 and dropped our bombs as did the rest of the planes in the rally. We received three holes - engine #4 - Rudder and the biggest - size of a baseball in the right wing past #4 engine. Plenty cold -420 C. We flew position #6, carried 8-500 and 2700 gal. gas.
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.
