We are at work on building rosters for the original service organization, comprised of units from the 33rd Air Service Group. This was the organization in place for most of the war, that is from early 1943 through 14 April 1945. The 33rd ASG provided the service units for both the 4th and the 56th Fighter Groups. While there will be a large overlap in the personnel on the two rosters, there are men who were transferred out prior to the reorganization and thus never served in the 438th ASG. They will be represented in their appropriate unit rosters. Biography pages for service group veterans who served in both groups will be accessible from either group's rosters.
With the addition of the service group rosters we have added our first "service" bio page, that of CWO Edward Richie of the 864th Air Engineering Squadron. We hope to have the 33rd ASG with associated subordinate unit rosters ready for next week.
Also new this week is a feature we've borrowed from the Eagle Eye named Gone West. This is under the News menu.
