Re: THIS IS D DAY PLUS 58 YEARS !!!
Where was I?
I was on the other side of the world, with the 3rd Bomb. Gp. in Hollandia, Dutch New Guinea.A far piece from Omaha Beach, but we were with them in spirit.We knew the sooner they got it done on that side, the sooner we would get help on our side of the world.We had been over there 2-1/2 years and had just recieved our full compliment of 80
A-20s six months before.Up to that point we had flown
A-24s, A-20s and B-25s.A month later we would test fly the first four A-26s in combat.Back to the drawing board - they had bugs to be worked out.It was almost a year later befoe they became available.
