My uncle, A. L. Poston was in the 91st Bomb Group. He flew in the 322 Squadron. He was shotdown and killed on May 19, 1943. The name of his plane was the "Spirit of Alcohol". I was able to find out information about my uncle and his plane at the 8th Air Force Museum in Savannah, Ga. They have an excellent resource center. I also have built and flown a radio controlled B-17 (10' wingspan) as a tribute to my uncle, my father, and the crew of the "Spirit of Alcohol". You can see pictures of the plane and effects of my uncle's at the website address.

Thanks for the great site and keeping alive the respect and attention these "heros" deserve.

I enjoyed your web page by learning about the 91st Bomb Group. As a hisorical writer, I would like to know about your upcoming reunions. I put our groups historical photos on a CD-ROM, over 1500 of them, of activities in World War II. Thank you.

I am trying to find anyone who may have known my grandfather. His name was Howard Wiles and he was a ball-turrett gunner. I am very proud of my grandfather and the rest of the 91st.

My cousin, TSGT Jewel C. Maddox, was shot down and KIA, March 29, 1944 after bombing Brunswick, Germany. He was in the 91st at Bassinbourne, but I do not know which outfit nor any particulars of the plane. Any sites out there with casualty lists or crew pictures??? Thanks. I enjoy this wesite very much. Keep'em flying!

I am more than impressed with the quality of the 91BGMA web page. I also just received Marion Havelaar's outstanding book which I found through your page. My father, 1Lt Charles H. (Chuck) Davis flew as a pilot with the 401st in B-17s "Little Patches" and "General Ike". He was killed in 1974, but were he alive today, he would celebrate your worthy efforts. Following in my father's footsteps, I'm a retired Air Force colonel with my own Eighth Air Force service in B-52Ds in Vietnam (179 combat missions). I appreciate your hard work to keep alive such a vital part of our nation's heritage. Thanks and God bless you.

I was researching the 401st when my father died on July 2, 1999. He flew B-17G, including "Blood & Guts", from December, '44 through the group's last mission. Two months before he died, the now last surviving member of his crew, Glen Felton (ball turret) and he met to talk. Glen, who lives in Hawaii and can't travel much now, sent his son to the funeral. I found original service records, including flight logs and mission lists, in my father's personal papers as well as an Air Medal and three oak leaf clusters. The citations are nonspecific. Any help in finding out the circumstances would be appreciated. Best wishes to all on this site.
