Good morning, happy to have found this site.To answer your questions the name is Chuck and I'll go by B-24guy. I just turned 72. Born in Michigan, but moved away at the ripe old age of 4 months. My life was spent following my military dad from base to base, including two tours in Japan and another in Germany. Also managed almost two tours of my own in Vietnam. My primary interest is the 15th Air Force in Italy during 1944-1945, both combat and non-combat units. Specifically I'm researching the 461st Bomb Group, which was my fathers group, but also speak conversational 451st and 484th. I'm also studying the 15th Air Force Service Command (XV AFSC) and Allied Air Force Service Command/MTO (AAFSC/MTO), how they related to the combat units, and to each other. For five years I was the historian for the 461st Bomb Group and have provided some assistance to other groups. My greatest rewards have been helping veterans and their families learn (or remember) their service during WWII.
