21, 1946 The B-17's
were really operating today, first, one group
of the 97th took off this morning and second,
a group from the 301st took off behind them. This
afternoon the same thing happened. All flights
were on airports near Gabes. Frag bombs were
used. I was flying as Lt.
flight was rather easy. The 97th was in front
of us and caught all the flak.
