  1. My father served in the 8th Air Force during WW2 in England, how do I get any information on his unit. One of the planes he restored was the Dangerous Lady, he and his crew rebuilt the plane after it was headed for scrap and it never missed another mission. I’ve tried to learn information on his service but have not had much luck. I have his DD-214 and his uniform with the 8th Air Force patches plus news articles sent back to the local newspaper from that time. I was is in Rapid City, South Dakota and I understood it was a 8th Air Force reunion. I talked to an individual and gave him my fathers name and my email address. He emailed me later and said there was no record of my father ever being in the 8th Air Force. I would appreciate any information you could give me. Thank You, Dennis Hansen

    1. Dear Mr. Hansen,

      You posted a request for information on your father’s 8th AF service, but did not provide me with his full name. If you could send it, I will look through the AFEES website and some others for info on him.

      Best wishes,

  2. Hello,

    Can you please share information about the Savannah reunion in 2021? My father was a Navigator on a B17 shot down over France and aided in his escape through Operation Bonaparte.
    He was 8th AF, 94th BG. The Eighth Air Force Historical Society recently posted a video on Facebook about the crew and their escape. I was planning a trip to Savannah and this would make it a once in a lifetime experience.
    Thank you,
    Sharon Butler

    1. Hello Sharon,

      The reunion of the 8th AF Historical Society this year is set for October 27-31 in Savannah, Georgia at the Savannah Riverfront Marriot. If you are a member of that society, there will be more information in the March issue of their magazine. We will post more information on this page as it becomes available. The 2022 reunion will be in Memphis. Thank you for asking. It prompted me to update this page of our website.
      Bruce Bolinger,
