    My father was the radio operator on this bomber for 25 missions. I have many old yellow sheets of orders written by generals commending the 385th on leading the entire 8th into Germany. I also have a scrapbook of his tours of death and survival including pictures. I cannot imagine what he went through. I am only gratefull that his blood is in my veins.

      Hi, I recently came into possession of an Over Seas hat With 30 Bombing missions 94th BH 333 stamped on it. Also stamped was a soldier’s Laundry number N-2484. I have been trying to find the identity of this soldier. I noticed your comment that your father was on this B17 during WW2. If at all possible, if you have a roster, names etc. of any crew member that has the last name beginning with „N“ and the last 4 digits of his serial # ..2484 , of just a crew member that has the last name beginning with „N“ it would be greatly appreciated if you could forward that to me. david.obal63@gmail.com
      Thanks,
      Dave
