|I have no idea where this
picture was taken but I know from his discharge papers he was single
engine qualified and that MOS was listed for 8 months. He also was
assigned to the WW2 494th Bomb Group and the 867th Bomber Squadron. The length of assignment is unknown.
It is clear that while assigned to this group, he was awarded the Air Medal,
Bronze Star, and the Soldiers Medal. He drove a fuel truck away which was
on fire to protect the American airplanes on the flight line. Afterwards
he organized a fire brigade to fight the fire. No contacts have been able
to tell me what he flew, number of hours, what missions etc. Everyone one
has been real helpful and I am sure the answer is right around the corner.
I just have not been able to give enough appropriate info.
If anyone knows more about Kenny or his squadrons or airplanes please write to Bob Below
