From Casper to Topeka...

Per Special Orders No. 36, 331st Combat Crew Training School
AAB, Casper, Wyoming, 5 February 1944:

The following named Officers and Enlisted Men, consisting of thirty seven (37) HBC Crews, CA-2-6 Prov Gp, listed on the atched inclosure (sic) No. 1...are reld fro atchmt unasgd 351st Base Hq & AB Sq, this sta and trfd to 2d Hv Bomb Proc Hq, AAB, Topeka Kansas.

(The following listed crews reported to Topeka, Kansas for the final phase of training prior to heading overseas. The list is taken from my Grandfather's personal collection of official paperwork. Spelling of names is per the actual documents. Where possible, I have attempted to compile information as to what each of these crews experienced during the course of their combat tours. In some cases I have found information relating to entire crews. In others, to individuals only. My honest attempt to compile this information has used the assistance of Google search and Findagrave.com. This roster almost certainly contains some erroneous data, and I welcome any corrections or information that pertains to, and can verify the information that tells the story of these men.)
