Military Monday - WWII Crew Assignment

This is a document that I received from a friend who is very interested in the history of the 94th Bomb Group of the Army Air Force during WWII. Much of this group was stationed at Bury St. Edmunds base in England. This Special Orders document dated Feb 21, 1944 shows my grandfather William Bellew, as being assigned to the crew of 1st Lt. Floyd Butler, the pilot that he flew with on every mission in the war, with the exception of his last.
This is just one more piece to the puzzle in putting together the military history of my family. Many of these Bomb Groups have message boards and forums full of very knowledgeable members who can help you find out the information about your soldier.

  1. Dear Cindy, I hope this March 3, 2010 finds you and your family in good health. I like the idea of your Military Mondays. I have many military ancestors I wish to honor on my blog. You have a wonderful blogspot and I plan to visit often.
