39th Bomb Group (VH)


I have created a 39th Bomb Group (VH) emailing list that is hosted by Yahoo Groups entitled the39thbga. This is so Veterans of the 39th Bomb Group (VH) and/or families of 39th BG Veterans can come together and share your experiences. For the Veteran you can share the memories with each other; for family such as myself we will be able to learn more about not only what our family member did during their service with the 39th BG but a little more about Our History ...

Yahoo Groups is a free and easy email group. You can go to their site to check out their entire list of mail groups here. This will give you an overview of what an email mailing list is.

If you would like to join our mailing list:

First, click here to go to our community's front page.

Next you'll see a page with three columns: a left menu column, a center "Description" column, and a right column titled "Join Now!" Click on "Join this Grioup" in the right column.

Now click the link that says, "New Member? Click here to register for FREE!" Then fill out the info and pick a password. Follow the instructions, such as submitting the verification code that Yahoo will send you by e-mail, and you'll be all set as a new 39th BG community member!

Changing Your Status:
Once you've subscribed you're now a member of our community. Now you can change your settings: how you receive e-mail, your profile, etc. First, go to the front page here. Now the third column on the right is labeled "Membership." Click on "Delivery Options."

Now you can change how you receive messages:

Individual emails - getting the messages one at a time as they come in.

Daily digest - getting all the messages combines into one digest (you will not receive any attachments of files or photos in this method)

No Mail - which means you are a member but don't want e-mail; you'll read the messages from the YahooGroups web site after logging in. Use this option when going on vacation or if you do NOT want email arriving at your inbox on your home PC.

Under "HTML Email" are these options:

HTML You'll receive email with colors and graphics.

Plain text You'll get mostly text in the body of the e-mails.

Once you make your changes, click on the "Save Changes" button, and you're set!

More Features:

You can do more things with the menu options in the left column on the front page:

Messages: You can read all of the messages from day one, even if you don't receive e-mail. Also, the more recent messages have the attachments that you can download! This area is one of the more valuable and powerful sections in this board.

NEW!! Yahoo has included a search function!! You can search for any obscure word in all messages. This is just what we've been looking for!

Post: Go here to post a message to the e-mail list.

Members: Here you can see who belongs and read their profiles. You can also change your own personal profile, such as age, location, etc.

Files: You can post or download files on this board! Just follow the instructions and upload what you want. But, please, let's not get carried away with the number of files and their size.

To Unsubscribe: If you want to quit the community: Go to the community front page here.

In the right column under "Membership" click on Unsubscribe. Then just follow the prompts.
