-Combat Missions of the 489th-
* Quentin Kaiser, has circled the missions in which he participated.
Below is a copy of the actual
flight schedule posted at the Operation's board for his first mission on May 18, 1944:
Here's the comment in the Tactical Diary for May 18, 1944 regarding my father's first mission:
"Lt. Hastor is proving an excellent flight leader. Today, he and Scofield,
our bombardier, teamed up to destroy a new target- a large railroad bridge at Viareggio.
More new crews. Some of them were in Capt. Decker's squadron at Greenville. The boys are
getting their beach time."
