Tactical Support Mission: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) provided all three groups of the 41st A Combat Bombardment Wing, the third of 11 wings of Air Task Force #3 on today's mission. The target was an important link in the enemy supply line into the invasion area. The weather cooperated with sufficient visibility to bomb visually, although an air traffic conflict forced the high group to pull out and make a 360° turn before starting their bomb run.
