I have no idea where this picture was taken but I know from his discharge  papers he was single engine qualified and that MOS was listed for 8 months.  He also was assigned to the WW2 494th Bomb Group and the 867th Bomber Squadron.  The length of assignment is unknown. It is clear that while assigned to this group, he was awarded the Air Medal,  Bronze Star, and the Soldiers Medal. He drove a fuel truck away which was on fire to protect the American airplanes on the flight line. Afterwards he organized a fire brigade to fight the fire. No contacts have been able to tell me what he flew, number of hours, what missions etc. Everyone one has been real helpful and I am sure the answer is right around the corner.  I just have not been able to give enough appropriate info.
