Hi Will:

A little introduction. I am John J. Mueller. I joined the 67th Bomb Squad in March 1944 at Shipdham, Norfolk, England. I flew my first mission on 1 April. Went to Fredrichausen in southern Germany. Flew as copilot with Bill Wahler, a classmate of mine from 43 E. WCTC.

The next one [J 042 til end on right] I flew with my crew to Brunswig on April 8. A ball buster, led the Air Force, lost one aircraft before IP due to flak. Turned on to the bomb run and lost six aircraft on the bomb run. The flak was heavy. The fighters were murderous (ME109 and FW190). [J042 on 12th - Mercer]. I had 25 missions to fly for my tour. My feelings were no way. Will, they raised the missions to 30, then to 35. I finished my tour (35 missions) on the 25th day of July, 1944 at St. Lo. Still wondering today how we did it. Thank the Lord.

Will, I would like to get some 67th Pelican patches (3). Do you have some? I would like to get a copy of the book 44th Liberators over Europe and the book 67th Bomb Squadron. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me on the above.

Yours truly,
