May 22– 31 – 44: Squadron strength as of 31 May 106 Officers and 340 Enlisted Men, the greatest strength yet reached by the organization. The following Officers and Enlisted Men assigned and joined during this period: Lieutenants: Kirk, **LUCKHOUPT **, Riley, Rosenau, Winstead, McKinley; the following Sergeants were assigned and joined: Haack, Goldstein, Wald, Trigler, White, Poteet and Knauss; Corporals: Wolfe, Reber, Szvetics, PFC: Yearwood, Young; Privates: Gorman, Griffin, Griffis. The following Officers and Enlisted Men transferred to U.S.A. Captain Freeland, Lieutenant Hales; Sergeants: Jeffry, McEntee, Gebhart. The following Officers and Enlisted Men were wounded during this period: Lieutenants: Feeley, Greene and Shear; Sergeants: Bell, Anderson and Lieutenants Apple and Matthews. In the only loss of a plane during the month Lieutenant Matthews and crew received a direct flak hit in one engine while on mission over Subiaco and were forced to land on a fighter landing strip near the Cassino front. With great skill he succeeded in crash landing his plane while it was loaded with bombs. Three of the crew bailed out and landed safely in the water. Lieutenant Matthews and Sergeant Bell remained with the ship in order to aid Sergeant Anderson who was seriously wounded in the leg. The increasing tempo of the battle in Italy was demonstrated by the fact that the 448th flew 34 missions during the month. The month ended with excellent weather and the squadron morale was at a high pitch. Rotation of a few of the older Enlisted Men gave slight encouragement to the rest of the squadron.
