(Taken from a letter to Will Lundy)

March 11, 1980

Dear Will:

Thank you for your letter and updating me on what's happening with the 44th. I am interested in going to Cambridge, Massachusetts over the 4th.

Up till now, I've been very busy in life but we recently sold the above Guest House and have time to get involved. We are in Florida six months a year and in Jersey six months, so when you get this note, we will be starting back to 620 Duquesne Blvd., Bricktown, NJ 08723. Send any info there.

I've many more addresses to contact men in the 67th but they are back in New Jersey. When I get home, I'll get them for you.

By the way, I just made my first model of a B-24. I guess you got me thinking of the old days.

Best regards,

Art Thoms

Letter to Will Lundy

Dear Will:

Thank you for finding me. I enjoyed your newsletter and the update on several of my crewmembers. I'll follow up on them and send you the two addresses of those not listed.
Yes, I was 1st Pilot on the one mission we flew, I was put on as a Co-Pilot with my crew to make room for this chap, John Fitzgibbons (who to my knowledge was an instructor stateside and was getting in a mission for some reason or other. It was our only meeting and I have not seen him since.

Others in my crew were:
Lester M. Mitchell
Box 875
Akron, Iowa 51001

Charles H. Hasper
7000 E. Quincy Ave, F-118
Denver, CO. 80237

Keep me informed as to the next reunion in Dayton. Hope to see you there.

Sincerely,

Arthur W. Thoms
