world-war-II-bomber-pilot-missing-in-action-postal-history-cover-san-jose-ca WORLD WAR II BOMBER PILOT MISSING IN ACTION 1944 COVER - MAILED FROM SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA

Very nice cover with four Win the War stamps. Missing box signed by Lt. John A. Harbaugh.  Army Return to Sender marks also on face of cover. Reverse has Army Control Section postmark. Cover was originally mailed from San Jose, CA, March 1, 1944. Peter J. Abell shot down by flak and fighters and crashed near Fulda, GR on a mission to Gotha, GR on 24 Feb 1944 in B-24J #42-100335. Prisoner of War (POW).  The 703d Bombardment Squadron was activated 1 April 1943 at Gowen Field, Idaho. And shifted to Wendover Army Air Field, Utah on 8 June 1943, where initial training with the Consolidated B-24 Liberator took place. The squadron moved to Sioux City Army Air Base, Iowa in July 1943 to complete training. At Sioux City, Iowa, actor Jimmy Stewart was assigned as the squadron's operations officer and became the squadron commander.  The 703d entered combat on 13 December 1943 attacking U-boat installations at Kiel. The unit operated primarily as a strategic bombardment organization until the war ended, striking such targets as industries in Osnabrück, synthetic oil plants in Lutzendorf, chemical works in Ludwigshafen, marshalling yards at Hamm, an airfield at Munich, an ammunition plant at Duneberg, underground oil storage facilities at Ehmen, and factories at Münster. The squadron participated in the Allied campaign against the German aircraft industry attacking a Me 110 aircraft assembly plant at Gotha. This was the longest running continuous air battle of World War II - some two and a half hours of fighter attacks and flak en route and leaving the target area. Bomb damage assessment photographs showed that the plant was knocked out of production indefinitely. The unit helped to prepare for the invasion of Normandy by bombing airfields, V-1 and V-2 launch sites, and other targets. It attacked shore installations on D-Day, 6 June 1944 and supported ground forces at Saint-Lô by striking enemy defenses in July 1944. During the Battle of the Bulge, between December 1944 and January 1945 it bombed German communications. Early on 24 March 1945 the 703d dropped food, medical supplies, and ammunition to troops that landed near Wesel during the airborne assault across the Rhine and that afternoon flew a bombing mission to the same area, hitting a landing ground at Stormede.
