321st Bomb Group, 447th Bomb Squadron, B-25 Mitchells

/ Combat out of North Africa.

447th Bombardment Squadron Special Account:   September 3, 1942:  The O.D. was awakened at 2:30 A.M. with the news that one of our planes had crashed near a road just outside of Greenville, S. C.  The news was phoned in by Lt. John Colby, navigator on the flight, who bailed out before the crash. He added that the other members of our Squadron in the plane had also successfully jumped.  They were Lt. Jack DeMoss, pilot; Lt. Clyde J. Morganti, co-pilot; and S/Sgt. Michael Galich, engineer.  It seems that they had run into some navigational difficulties and were forced to abandon ship due to lack of gas.  Lt. Morganti sustained the only injury – a sprained ankle.  The men who had jumped straggled in all morning with stories of how they landed in trees, marshes, and on farm houses.  Their membership fee for the Caterpillar Club was expensive to Lts. DeMoss and Colby since they each had to pay $112.50 in damages for the plane to the Government.
Colby, John W., 2Lt, bombardier, navigator            DeMoss, Jack M., 2Lt, pilot
