Just found a photo of my father, Eugene F. TIghe from Leyte, P.I. In 1945. It was an official photo of him as a member of Ken’s Men 43rd Bomb Group- The First Tram. He started the war as a private and finished as an officer. He stayed in the military and went on to become a Lt. General.

Really like this site very informative!

From March 1983 to July 1985, I was a TSGT assigned to the 43rd Strategic Wing, Andresen AFB, Guam, and the Wing Historian. I have been researching past history on the 43rd and was glad to find your site.

One of the best AF unit sites I've seen. Thanks :!cool:

My father, Cpl Jack T. Owings, was in the 5th Air Force, 43rd Bomb Group, 64th Squadron. He was a waist gunner on a B-24. Arrived in the Pacific (Australia, I believe) on 8/24/44, and then island hopped with the 43rd bomb group 64th bomb squadron through the Philippines. Was on Ie Shima when the Japanese flew onto the island to surrender. He headed home 12/10/45. I would love to know what plane he flew on, crew members, etc., but his military records were burned up in the fire in St. Louis. Any information, contacts, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather Donald Eugene Embert served with the 403rd as a Bombardier. I’m the family historian so I’m trying to find out as much as I can about his service since he has passed on.

My dad was in the 43rd Bomb Group, 64th Squadron in 1944 and 1945. He flew Cocktail Hour, the Dragon and His Tail, and Mable's Lables on some of his missions. He was also flying The Record Breakers when it got shot up so back that it was scrapped after he (with some help from his copilot I'm sure0 nursed it home.

I knew Stan Ensberg (63rd sq of the 43rd) when he was stationed at Naha Air Base on Okinawa around 1969-71. At the time he was flying Candlestick C-123 missions over the Ho Chi Mien trail. I was around 14 years old then, but I always saw Stan for church (my dad was the head chaplain at Naha AB). He was a great guy and was always interested in saying hello and having a friendly conversation with me. I've started compiling a list of people who made a positive impact on my life, and Stan was one of those people. Any information, stories or photos relating to Stan Ensberg would be appreciated! Many Thanks,
Paul
