RE: 868th BS, 13th A.F., So. Pac.
I have been following this thread with interest. I believe that my father was in the 868th based on an address an old army buddy has. This friend was with him earlier in the war before the 868th was formed. His name was Sgt Sam White, from Wheatland, Wyoming, and he was an aircraft armorer. One of the only friends from his unit I that I remember him talking about was a man named Ed Scanlon who became a dentist near Chicago after the war. I don't know if Ed was with him beofre or after the 868th was formed. Can anyone on this board confirm that my father was indeed in the 868th? Thanks Kate Schaumann
