Target: Osaka


June 7, 1945


Capt. Bleiler and crew #18 “Devilish Snooks”


This was another night radar mission to the industrial part of the city as the target. The bombs hit their mark completing another good mission. The Group Bombardier flew this mission with us and he commended me for my bomb run.
