Mike - I read your e-mail with great interest. I have several newspaper
clippings stating that my Dad, Don Moede and his crew participated in
the October 14, 1943 Schweinfurt raid. I also have a newspaper picture
re: the Schweinfurt raid. In the margin is written "Don's first raid."
Perhaps he flew with Hughes; I'd appreciate any assistance you can give
to confirm this. Up to now, I had no idea that so few 100th planes flew
on the 10/14/43 raid.
