Need Info On Picture- Lazin Crew
Hi all, I was given the attached picture along with some gunner's wings that came from an estate sale. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this. I was in contact with the 6th BG Association, but never heard back from their historian. The picture is of the Lazin crew, I don't know the squadron. The picture and wings were from the estate of Sgt. Unclebach, the right gunner.
Back Row L to R: Lt. Steuwie(sp?), Radar Operator; Sgt. Unclebach, Right Gunner; Lt. King, Navigator; Lt. Lazin, Airplane Commander; Sgt. DeBowno(sp?), Tail Gunner; F/O Head, Co-Pilot.
Front Row L to R: Sgt. Allen, Left Blister; F/O Byers (sp?), Bombardier; Sgt. Reed, Ring Gunner; Sgt. Weber, Radio; Sgt. Carrigan(sp?), Engineer.
The Airplane commander, Dragi C. Lazin, stayed in the USAF, I found mention of him commanding the 305th Rescue Squadron as a Maj. in 1959. He is now deceased. Just curious about what squadron, and any other info on the crew. Thanks.
