314TH BOMBARDMENT WING
APO 246 Unit 2, c/o PM
San Francisco, California
Officers and EM of the 314th Bombardment Wing.
We have just finished eleven days of all out effort.
The result of this effort as made history. Terrific damage has
been inflicted on the enemy’s vital manufacturing and
shipping centers. Your effort has shortened the war and saved
American lives that would have been lost if this damage were
to be inflicted by any other method of attack. You have operated
under primitive conditions that taxed your ingenuity and resourcefulness.
Your tireless effort and fighting spirit have exemplified the
highest traditions of our armed forces.
I am humbly proud to be your Commander.
Brigadier General, USA
