War Journal - March 14, 1945

Trying out the AA guns at our base.
El Lobo Loco - This is the ship we flew across the Atlantic.

Mission #27 - Dropped bombs on a small town & railroad junction furnishing supplies to the Remagen bridge head area. Good results. There wasn't much flak but it was very accurate. The ship on our right wing was shot up pretty bad with one man wounded and the one on our left wing was shot down. The ship spun in - Pappas saw three men get out but only one chute open. It was a new crew on their 2nd mission (Lt. Logue). We are flying deputy lead regular now. The Lord is protecting us because we received no holes. It was getting pretty close and I heard the plane explode when it was hit.
