ARTIFACT: Beautiful WWII United States Army Air Forces Unit History of the 433rd Troop Carrier Group, 5th Air Force. The unit history contains nearly 250 pages and was printed in Australia in 1945 to include stories, photographs, color images of the squadron and group patches and a full roster in the back. The 433rd was the largest Troop Carrier Group and was under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Guile. The missions and role of the Troop Carrier was an integral part of the Army Air Force throughout WWII. Troop Carriers delivered airborne troops and paratroopers to following area invasions or the troops were delivered in advance of an invasion. The 433rd Troop Carrier Group provided reinforcements, ammunition or engineering equipment, evacuated the wounded, and carried out air reconnaissance missions. It was awarded the Philippine Presidential Unit Citation for its role in the liberation of the Philippines during 1944-1945.
