Shortly after the end of World War II, the Public Relations Section of the War Department mailed out a letter titled "History of the 414th Night Fighter Squadron". This letter was postmarked June 24, 1945. While this letter is a great place to begin, it is incomplete. I am seeking members of the 414th and/or their family members to complete this History.

Rip was one of my father's best friends. Rip passed away in 1995.
