Info Contributor - Roger Fenton
The crew shown completed 32 missions with the 44th BG / 506th BS. Hertzberg only flew the crew's first five missions, and was then replaced. The photo was taken during the Mendenhall's crew training. For the most part, this crew stuck together for their entire tour. Flew the majority of their missions in two ships: MY PEACH (42-100415) and MY GAL SAL (42-50626).
