This site exists to perpetuate the name, history, comradeship, memories and deeds of the living and the heroic dead of the 376th Heavy Bombardment Group(HBG). By doing so the 376th HBG Veterans Association hopes to preserve the history of the 376th HBG, and its role in WWll. As well we hope to help others in the search of family members and their role in history.
Official records pertaining to WWII actions of the 376th HBG are nearly non existent, as the barge they were being transported on was sunk in the harbor at Bari, Italy. Unfortunatly, the 1973 fire at the National Archives wiped out most of what was left of personnel files.
Please note we have kept photos as large as possible to maintain details, so they may be slow to load. This way you can see clearly the faces of the brave men who fought so hard during World War II.
The website was started with just four photographs and a short history provided by historian, James Walker. Everything else has been submitted by our veterans and family members in the desire to share their experiences for all to see. We strongly encourage all our veterans and their family members to write out the memories and stories of the time served with the 376th HBG and consider submitting them. For further information on submitting stories or photos or see the Submitting Photographs page.
We apologize for our currently cumbersome site; it is a work in progress.
