25 July 1944 Mission #138 Target: St. Lo Area

Once again this mission was a repeat of the one on the day prior. A major effort of (48) crews was briefed between 0330-0430 hours and at 0621 all commenced take-offs. All ships went over the target area dropping a total of (1722) frag 120# and 260# bombs in an excellent pattern one mile square just northwest of St. Lo along the St. LoPerrier road in support of the U.S. First Army's pending offensive. No enemy aircraft were encountered but flak was moderate, damaging (9) Liberators. The heavies of the Eighth had completed their bombing on the St. Lo targets by 1055 and at 1100 hours the First Armyís major offensive commenced. In the returning aircraft which began landing around 1220 hours, one crew member was wounded on First Lieutenant Gannís crew from the 579th.
