Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:
Got my feet on the ground and it aided me into developing into an adult.
 
Comments:
With reference to David A. Stocking of Sacramento CA, he was my Navigator for a time. After the war he was assigned to another crew to return to the States to pick up sports equipment for moral. On takeoff from Kwajelain, they crashed and all were killed.
