War Journal - Feb. 21, 1945

Three friends just returned from a mission.

Bombed a bridge over the Weser River near the town of Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. Visual mission - moderate flak - one hole in our ship but two Purple Hearts in our flight. It was another penetration to the maximum of our range - 4:30 hrs. I was air sick again due to 1 1/2 hrs continual evasive action. Just Pap, Ed & I flew on our crew today - with Lt. Sorrenson in our newly assigned 802 "Pappy Pram". It was its 125 mission. Got a good look at Belgium, Holland & Rhur Valley. Saw one huge formation of B-17's - approx 300 to 400 in it.
