The first time Brady shows up is Sep 43 war diary – (note Schneider and Brady together).   Captain William J Schneider is the Pilot, Lt Joseph J Brady the Co-Pilot in the B-25 ALLY OOP Photo #42-32403.  He was in the 310th Bomb Group, 379th Bomb Squadron, from Sept.'43.

 He was one of people in the G swap from 321st to 310th – G’s and crews went to 310th, and 310th gave the 321st replacements. 

Brady flew 19 mission with the 321st, between 16 Nov 43 and 18 Jan 44 – most on 42-64599.  He returned to States in Feb 44.

321stBomb Group War-Diary;

21 Dec 43 - 446th BS War Diary:  Mission today with plenty of flak.  Lt Brady’s ship so badly shot up he had to crash land at home base.  No one injured in landing but Lt. Mastroianni got slight cut from flak.  Sgt. Cleveland bailed out of Lt. Fetterly’s plane over target.  Because of steep dive he evidently thought the plane out of control.
