Anyone,
May have asked this before, but have a name now. A former
B-24 tail gunner, believe was in your unit, lives near
me in Mesquite, Texas. Name is Carl Friedl. Must be in
his early 80's, widowed, and probably from Texas orig-
inally. Curious if anyone remembers him. Try to get
him over here to check out your website, but no luck
yet. Flew many missions from what I gather. When first
arrived in South Pacific, the crews new plane was taken
away from them, and they flew any an all planes avail-
able for missions thereafter. Had some close calls, but
all crew made it back, with their plane, after each
mission.
