Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a nice World War II grouping of a United States Army Air Forces "29th Bomb Group Combat Diary" booklet, a squadron personnel photo taken in front of a B-29 bomber, a Certificate of Appreciation for services and its original mailing envelope. All of these articles belonged to S/Sgt Frank J. Vieira, 6th Bomb Squadron, 29th Bomb Group. We believe Vieira is pictured to the left (as you look at the photo) of the officer at the center of the group shot. The mailer is postmarked 1945 and addressed to Vieira's mother or wife Mary in Jamestown, Rhode Island. The 29th carried out multiple bombing missions on Japan from the strategic location of Guam.
