War Journal - March 21, 1945

#32 - This sqdn. made two missions today both to same area as mission yesterday. I went on the afternoon mission to the town of Stadtlohn - little west of Munster. Almost all the ships in this group were shot pretty bad but no one was hurt. Something big must be up in that area as there were so many planes in that area it was hard to make a bomb run. Even the RAF was in with us. Every town (large or small) east of the Rhine was a smoking inferno. We were all dropping fire bombs. I saw our bombs destroy an entire town - smoke was visual for many miles.

  1. Certainly makes it obvious why all this is hard to talk about.
