Info Contributor - Eugene R. Pittman (Radar Bombardier)
Assigned to Capt. Rex R. Rhea's crew in Feb 45. Capt. Rhea was the Operations Officer of the 42nd Squadron. Capt. Kroh's crew named her and after finishing their missions, she was assigned to Crew #1. I was the Radar Bombardier of that crew and flew 25 missions. We finished our 40th mission 6 Apr 45. She was then assigned to another crew in the squadron, and to my knowledge, was still flying in July 1945.
