March 23, 1945


Today we bombed the M.Y. at St. Valatin. Our bomb load was 40-100s. Again we flew ship 87. I was R.C.M. again. Looks like we’ll be stuck with that ship because I'm working radar. Takeoff was at 08:10 - Target at 1232 and landing 1545, Total 7:35 hrs. Bombing alt. was 23,700. Guns at the target was reported to be 32. Flak was scant and high. We got one hole in the waist. I have the flak. Our escort was P-38s, 30 of them. (Saw about 10.) On the way to the target the news broadcast said Landshut was still in flames from Mondays bombing. We started a fire that was really a fire. That was damned good results.


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.

Donate directly to the 376 Endowment
