The following men were part of the 314th BW. A dedicated organization for 314th BW personnel does not exist as such we have dedicated space to honor these men who served in WWII.

If you or your family's veteran served with the 314th BW, please contact updates@39th.org so that may we list you or your family's veteran here. In addition please consider submitting a profile or dedication page to honor their service.

All to often a son or daughter of a WWII veteran will contact us in search of what their family's veteran did in WWII because they (the veteran - chose not to talk about what they did in the war) - Its better to have something in your own words then associate what your duties and what you did by what another comrade may have shared.
