Welcome to the 388th Bomb Group Database site.
Millions of Americans 'played their part' during World War II. The 388th Bomb Group consisted of 8400
who suffered and died in this noble cause. With this site, we honor and remember our brave heros who fought
so we could enjoy our freedom.
This site identifies the aircraft, the missions, the crews, the crashes but in particular the individuals of the 388th.
All of these crewmen suffered great hardship in flying the combat missions; many of them suffered the terror of being
shot down and either died or became POW. The support crew back at the base worked tirelessly to 'keep them flying'.
It is hoped that this site will be used by descendants and historians alike who wish to know more about the incredible
exploits of our fore fathers. A story that deserves to be remembered and one that deserves to be told and told again.
