My Dad was First Lieutenant John F. Hess, 90th Bombadier Group (H), served with the Jolly Rogers during this time period as navigator bombadier. I was trying to determine which squadron he was in. Unfortunately, he died nearly 30 years ago, but his families pride in him, and all of you lives on.
I have some newspaper articles and access to some pictures.

        John Hess and I were on the same crew in the 830th squadron of the JOLLY RODGERS. I have some photos of John that you are welcome to if you will send me your email address.

          Correction-I should have stated that John and I were in the 320th Sqd of the 9oth. It was almost automatic to list the 830th since I spent several years in that sqd of the 509th Bomb Group. Tom Hayter
