Updated 2/24/2017: It has been far too long since I have taken the time to update this website! Dad’s logbook continues to be found and I continue to receive emails and messages from around the world, although not as many as in the past. I still enjoy receiving emails and comments so feel free to touch base. As I have said before, it is still extremely gratifying to know that this one little website has been seen by so many and has made such an impact. Dad never did quite understand why anyone would care about his experiences! 75 years later and my dad’s logbook continues to be relevant, interesting, and current!
Unfortunately, since the time of the last update, the 379th Bomb Group Association, a group of veterans and first generation family whose mission it was to keep the memory of the 379th alive, has ceased to exist. As the years and veterans pass, membership and funding dwindled. Luckily, I was able to attend their last reunion in Nashville, Tennessee in September 2014. As you can imagine, it was an emotional experience.
The Association donated its relics and memorabilia to the National Mighty Eighth Museum outside of Savannah, Georgia. A copy of the book my sister made with scans of Dad’s logbook now resides there.
If you enjoy this website, please consider donating the the National Mighty Eighth Museum. The museum is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. ALL monies go to the museum. I do not receive income from this website. It is a labor of love.
