Flowers placed at Madingly for Remembrance Day/ Veterans Day

Once again the family of John Gell has placed a remembrance for SSMA at Madingly.
For those new members here, B-17 "Cat o'Nine Tails" of the 303rd BG crashed in the garden of the Gell family upon return to England 14 October 1943. All crew survived.

Julie Pendered we are forever endebted to you and yours for this yearly endeavor of love.

There is no doubt in our mind that Thomas will one day take over this task. Thank you for taking him each and every year and keeping our story alive in his heart.

84th Bomb Group Reunion in Dayton

Saturday, October 18 was a very special day at the 384th BG reunion in Dayton.  Brig. Gen. McLaughlin was there to pay tribute to Lt. Col. Budd Peaslee and share his thoughts on Col. Peaslee's career.  It was a wonderful meeting with members of the Peaslee family, who are now all "officially" part of our SSMA family.  From left to right: grand-daughters Debbie and Monique, General McLaughlin, son Richard who also spoke to honor his father, grand-daughters Caroline and Kari, daughter Michelle.

In his comments

General McLaughlin said "Col.

Budd Peaslee was my WWII

hero."

The Peaslee family was

presented with a wooden box

hand-crafted by 384th BG

member Keith Ellefson

       Inside the lid were the words of Peaslee's famous "Heritage of Valor .....

.....  which grand-daughter

Debbie somehow managed to

read. 

                                                                 

We do hope to see all these folks at Salt Lake City for next year's reunion.
