Two Targets Attacked: The 384th Bombardment Group flew as one group of the 103rd Combat Wing on today's mission. The plan was to drop half of each aircraft's bomb load on each of two targets. Maneuvering difficulties at the first target (Poix) reduced the bombs dropped there, but the remainder were all dropped on Glisy with good results.
