War Journal - Nov. 2, 1944

Pulled our third mission today. The mission was briefed & scrubbed three times each before we finally took off. The target was a railroad bridge over a river near the town of Trier, Germany - near the border of Luxenberg. My score is also perfect - I was air sick again but I fooled 'em this time - I carried a can along just for that purpose. The mission was two hours 34 minutes long and we got intense flak over the target. Approx 150 bursts hit our flight but no ships was seriously damaged. We were not even hit! I saw the end of the bridge go up in smoke - a beautiful sight - so it was all worth it.
