Many thanks for all your efforts to put these things together. It is greatly appreciated. I have had two letters from Geno Tulini, and two from Jack Wind. Before I continue, Jack said he talked to Harold D. Ench's widow. She informed Jack that he died about six years ago. The only other person I can tell you about is Albert Raymond Gere. He was ground crew chief in the 44th. He lived on Velande Road, Albuquerque, New Mexico. About five years ago he was a suicide victim. He was at Shipdham in 1944.
Sorry to be so slow to answer. I've been under the weather for about a year (anxiety attack) just about over it now. Medication effects about as bad. Yes, I would like to make it for the 44th reunion in Colorado. Also will send my dues to Ms. Evelyn Cohen for 2nd division membership. I had a letter from H. C. Pete Henry, past president 44th bomb group (609)655-0982.

Dear Pete Henry:
Received your packet including the "journal." I will send my dues and the "membership application" to the address shown (2nd division).
I was a radio operator on Jack Wind's crew. 44th BG 506 Squadron B, B-24-J Southern Comfort R-bar.
Mr. Will Lundy, 3295 North "H" Street, San Bernardino, California 92405, has sent information regarding our crew, still looking for two William A. Gunt, Philadelphia, PA and Harold D. Lightsap, Hammond, IND.
Also, Captain Davie H. Klaus (44th historian) 1332 E. Pennsylvania Ave., Redlands, California 92374-2744.
I have answered all letters, but you have to overlook the scribbling. I've had a case of anxiety (nervous system) for about a year, but just about out of the tunnel.
Thanks to all of you for all your time and efforts. Let me know if I can help. Am planning the reunion 44th in Colorado - hopefully.
