Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Russell Vaudrey | 400th Bomb Squadron, 90th Bomb Group, 5th Air Force - Army Air Corps

4:37   |   Russell Vaudrey had joined the Army Air Corps and was almost immediately taking care of airplanes at a training base for air cadets. When it came time to go overseas, he got some quick combat training and boarded a Liberty Ship bound for New Guinea. He bought some t-shirts for the bare breasted natives but he had to laugh when he saw what they did with them.
