Carl B. Yerian, Mission April 13, 1944

The next day, April 13, we were off again to Budapest, Hungary, where we bombed an airfield. We were attacked by 10-15 enemy aircraft, but again we were accompanied by a group of P-38s

Due to the heavy rains and our unimproved taxiways we had to taxi with full throttle and the bomb bays drug in the mud. Upon reaching altitude the doors would freeze in the closed position and we would drop the bombs through the doors. With the doors torn off and the temperature at minus 30 to minus 60 degrees it became so cold that my hands would freeze. When they began to thaw as we let down to lower altitude it was very painful.


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
