2nd Lt. Carl Citron flew 33 missions in 8th Air Force

2nd Lt. Carl Citron hadn’t been in England but a few weeks when his unit, the 466th Bomb Group, 786 Squadron, of the 8th Air Force, was assigned to a low-level bombing mission in their B-24 Liberators against the German submarine pens at Brest along the coast of Nazi-occupied France.

He flew with Jimmy Stewart in WW II

“Jimmy Stewart was just one of the guys after we got to know him,” Jim Myers said.  The Englewood, Fla. aviator flew with the movie star in a B-24 Liberator bomber during World War II.
