Hello @Clifton Palmer McLendon,

 

While this is not the official place for contacting the 459thbg association, one of my family members was also in the 758th BSQ and I can provide this information to them if you'd like me to.

 

This forum is for the game War Thunder, where I run the "squadron" of the 758th. Of course, it is inspired by the real life squadron.

 

Cheers :salute:
