In Memoriam

[Search Tip: Use " " for better search results ex. "John Q. Doe"; "City of ..."]

The financial stability of the 39th Bomb Group Association relies entirely on the payment of membership dues and donations. As our numbers diminish, the need for your support grows greater. There are many reasons why you might want to consider a donation to the 39th Bomb Group Association:

  • Perhaps you would like to make a donation "In Memory of a particular 39th veteran."

  • Perhaps our web pages or our group historian provided you information you never knew about a loved one

  • Maybe it's a way of saying thanks to a great organization,

  • Maybe a way of saying thanks to the 39th BG (VH) for the life skills learned so long ago,

  • There may be another reason why you might feel it appropriate.
If you'd like to benefit our organization and its activities, including research and preservation of what happened during those days of 1944-45, you may send your contribution, contact information and Veteran's name (if "In Memory Of..." a 39th Bomb Group (VH) veteran) to our Treasurer:
