"The Mighty Eighth"-- Part 5: The Crewmen


"The Eighth Air Force crewman was the final link in a complex chain of command that enabled The Mighty Eighth to accomplish thousands of combat missions.

"All of the planning and preparation of hundreds of personnel rested in the hands of the combat crews.  Each flyer handled his individual feelings and emotions in his own personal way as he proceeded to the target for the day."

Michael Faley, Historian of the 100th Bomb Group
