Capt. Harold J. Sullivan 363nd 378th 28. March 1945
I looked in Dan Gianneschi's book, "Mogin's Maulers, 362nd Fighter Group's History of WWII."
The Group Headquarters Report for the 28th of March doesn't mention Capt. Sullivan. It states (p. 144):
"The weather was not so good on the 28th and each squadron got in bone one mission, four flight armed recces N and NE of Frankfurt. The 378th around Giessen did not find much except a couple of locomotives. The other two squadrons, working in fatter areas, piled up almost fantastic claims agains enemy vehicles, the 377th under the leadership of Maj Geyer destroying more than 100."
The Historical Record 379th Fighter Squadron for March, 1945, states (p. 461):
"We were happy to see Capt. Sullivan again, who returned from the States after his thirty day leave."
The text does not give the date he left for leave or the date of his return.
The Mission Reports 379th Fighter Squadron for March 28, 1945, states (p. 485)
"28th: Sixteen (16) a/c are dispatched for a/r Germundun, Geiso area. Twelve a/c carried 2 x 265 frags with inst fuse. Four a/c cover. Four bombs 5 MT in woods at G-8322, all strafed and destroyed. Four bombs on several MT beneath overpass at G-7523 N P O. Eight bombs on 15 - 20 staff cars in woods at G-8125 - all strafed and destroyed. Damaged 3 MT at G-7623. Captain Sullivan hit by flak and bailed out at G-7522. Lt. Cuningham bellied east of Bad Kreuznach at M-1444. T/U 1245 - T/D 1625."
Im seeking al Informations about Captain Sullivan. Thanks for your help.
