I’m responding to your three replies to my postings on Genforum.
I’m trying to locate a former member of the 718th. We know for certain that he, and the entire 28th Bomb Group, 77th Squadron, 717th Squadron, 718th Squadron, went TDY from Rapid City Army Air Field to Scampton Royal Air Force Station, in the UK, from July to September 1948. We don’t know when he enlisted or when he was discharged. I’m awaiting Morning Reports from August 1948. I understand that could take some time.
What other areas should I be searching? Might contacting the 15th Reunion of the 449th Group’s Association help?
Thanks for the info you’ve already provided.I obtained the above from a former member of the 77th. He was a navigator in the 77th and mentioned the above TDY during the Berlin Airlift. He also mentioned the 28th had a History Room at one time but couldn’t recall and contact people.
