Leonard Winograd Mission November 4, 1944

In the late summer of 1944, our crew bombed (I think) the South East Ordinance depot at Munich. I (as navigator) was facing the feet of the copilot, Bob Andrus, when we took several hits, and the blood flew out of Bob like water from a hose. As we came off the bomb run, it was my job to call to each crew member and have them respond. As I did this, I called each crew member, and got a response, I think it was Lane Carleton who asked, "Navigator, aren't you going to call the copilot?" I said, "There's no point in that, I am sure he's gone." At that the co-pilot said, "l'm OK, but a couple of hydraulic lines have been cut. The blood's hydraulic fluid."

Editor's note: The crew flew to Munich on November 4, 1944.


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.
