The History

The Heavy Bombardment Group, now known as the 376th comprising the 512,513,514 and 515th squadrons, were originally designated as a special task force under the command of Colonel Harry Halverson. The organization was composed of 231 officers and men with a complement of 23 b-24 liberator bombers. They were assembled at Fort Meyers, FLorida, to take off on a remarkable flight – The ultimate destination of which was unknown.

This website gave me a better sense of what my Uncle Robert J Coutre’ went through. You’ll could gamble on-line inside caça niqueis online gratis. He was with the HALPROs which eventually became the 376th Heavy Bomber Group. They flew out of Fort Myers. Their first mission was June 12, 1942. Thirteen B-24s flew to Pelosi.

My uncle was a waist gunner in the lead plane.

When my uncle died, my aunt sent me his scrap book with over 600 pictures he shot with a Brownie camera plus newspaper articles, a PR officer’s narrative, citations, metals etc. Missing was the identification of the personnel in the pictures. I did locate two comrades that are still alive as of 4 months ago. Both men were radio operators.
