COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Jack Holmes | 885th Bomb Squadron, 2641st Special Group, 15th Air Force

4:41   |   He had washed out of flight school, but as a crewman on a B-24, Jack Holmes operated out of Italy. His base was in a well to do area, but the people had very little food, so he and his buddies did what they could to help. He flew with a special squadron supporting the OSS and supplying partisans fighting in the mountains. (This interview made possible with the support of SFC DALEY C. RUSSELL SR. USA (RET).)
