Updated 6/22/2014: Many years ago I created a website (in Frontpage!) to share my dad’s experiences as a B-17 navigator during World War II. That website had done it’s job well as I received emails from people around the world who found the site and read my dad’s flight journal entries. Often they want to just say “hi” and thank me for sharing the information. Sometimes they want to share an experience their relative had during the War. Sometimes they want to thank my father for his service. Sometimes they ask questions as they are a family member of a veteran who passed away without sharing their experience. Whatever the reason for their contact, it’s extremely gratifying to know that this one little website has been seen by so many and has made such an impact. Even my father could not believe that anyone would care about his experiences.
The current website has been updated and continues to serve the role that the original website served. 75 years later and my dad’s logbook continues to be relevant, interesting, and current!
If you enjoy this website, consider a donation to the 379th Bomb Group Association whose mission is to keep the memory of the 379th Bomb Group (Heavy) from World War II alive through public education. You may make a donation via their current Treasurer:

The 379th is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. ALL monies go to the 379th. I do not receive income from this website. It is a labor of love.
