The 384th Bombardment Group (H) provided the high groups for the 41st A and B Combat Bombardment Wings on today's mission. The A group bombed the assigned target visually, although the wing commander ordered a PFF attack. Our lead bombardier, Tony Palazzo, worked with the navigator to ensure they knew their position at all times on the bomb run. This teamwork resulted in a precise attack on the assigned aim point. [Note: See Mission 160B for the the B group.]
