380th Bomb Group Association

 NEWSLETTER #11 -- June  2002

Compatriots and Friends,

Inside you will find all the details concerning the Salt Lake City Reunion. We are looking forward to a very busy and most enjoyable time for all of you. See you there!

As we stated in the last FLYING CIRCUS, the development of the Missions Volumes of WE WENT TO WAR are proceeding well and I expect to be able to bring the initial handwritten manuscript for your review at the Reunion. Barb is proceeding steadily with putting the aircraft on our website in the face of her steadily increasing workload. She fully expects to have all the "D" aircraft on the web by the end of June (79 aircraft).

Great news! With the help of Dick Iverson (Colonel, USAF, Retired) of the 380th Bomb Wing at Plattsburgh, I have been in contact with Colonel F. Lee Brissey, our wartime commander, and he has promised to make every possible effort to be with us at Salt Lake City. Colonel Iverson wanted to be there as well, but had already promised to take his father to his (the father's) Navy Reunion on the same date. Many of you will remember Dick Iverson from the first Dayton Reunion.

Again, we look forward to seeing you all at Salt Lake City on September 18-22nd.

To preserve the memory of the 380th.


Theodore J. (Ted) Williams
