Re: men of the 58th BW Ordnance group
It was nice to hear from you. My Dad was 20th army air force,58th bomb wing, 770th bomb squad, 462nd bomb group.
You may be able to provide me with some information as to what exactly an Ordnance man did, and possibly how to get more information on his job description. I have found a lot of information on the B-29 bomber groups, but the Ordnance men are never mentioned and it seems to me that they also played a very important roll in the operation of the planes. from what I understand, the planes and crew could not carry out their missions had it not been for the Ordnance Men. If you could give me any information at all I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for writing.
