Faith, Leadership, and Heroism in the Jungle

Colonel Don Price has written an excellent account of some little known heroic events of the Vietnam War. "The First Marine Captured in Vietnam-The Biography of Donald G.

Black Sunday



     January 14th, 1945 would be called by the Luftwaffe “Black Sunday” because of the disastrous losses they suffered that day. For the 390th Bombardment Group of the Eighth Air Force, based at Framlingham/Parham in East Anglia, it was mission 243, to Derben, Germany. For them, it also marked the greatest single mission loss during all of WWII, when an entire squadron was wiped out.
