This unsigned article was obtained by Clarence Simonsen in 1983. It is a reprint of the original from the archives of the Albert F.

It was prepared by the Historical Section, Administration and Service Division, Headquarters, Second Air Force, 20 September 1945.

Small sections from author [Simonsen] information appear in blue type. Hyperlinks will be in red.
