    Picked up this footlocker recently. I believe it's from a bomb squadron that was either stationed in Panama, Caribbean or Bahamas during the war. Research to come.

    Scott was assigned to the 397th Bomb Squadron and they conducted anti submarine patrols in Panama and the Galapagos Islands during the war. Upon returned to Rock Island, IL., he was assigned to the arsenal there.
