VIC VALLERGA 8th AF 100th Bomb Group 350 SQDN
I am trying to locate this man. I found this reference in my father-in-law Dick Mullaney's journal and I would like to contact him if possible. Dick was with the 8th Army Air Force, 100th Bombardment Group, 350th Squadron stationed at Thorpe Abbotts Airbase #139 from the latter part of 1944 to the end of March 1945. The entry is:
Sun. Nov. 5, 1944
In the afternoon I went to the skeet range. While I was out there one of the ships came back from the mission all alone and dropped "Red;Red" (Flares indicate wounded on board.) I ran to the ship and found out it was Vic that was hit pretty bad in the arm and leg. They took him off the ship in a stretcher and rushed him to the hospital in an ambulance. He had a terrible rip in his leg. He is a swell kid, sleeps right beside me.
The last reference Dick makes to Vic is Christmas Eve of 1944. I think he might have been sent Stateside after that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
