14th Air Force, 308th Bomb Group, 373rd Squadron. 6 May 1945, morning after their last mission. Lower right, 1st Lt. James B. Reed, Navigator and my father. I have his blood chit and leather patch. I wear the bracelet he wore on 44 missions, 440 combat hours- I am more than a little proud of him and I miss him dearly. They were all great men!
