James Chafin | 370th Bomb Squadron, 307th Bomb Group, 13th Air Force

3:27   |   The Japanese had two oil fields on Borneo and these were an important target for the men of the 370th Bomb Squadron. B-24 gunner James Chafin remembers the heavy flak and fighter attacks on these missions. Then the enemy would bomb them at night at their base on Morotai.
