     Lt. Curtis H. Krogh, 7th Combat Cargo Squadron, 2nd Combat Cargo Group.  From his manuscript  '7th Combat Cargo Squadron History,   2nd Combat Cargo Group,  54th Troop Carrier Wing, 5th Air Force, World War II   This short History of the 7th Combat Cargo Squadron, no way tells the entire Squadron history.   It's sole purpose is to give one an idea of what the Squadron endured during it's time during the Second World War.   For a more detailed report on the the Squadrons History, one needs to access the records of the 2nd Combat Cargo Group and it's individual Squadrons at the            U.S. Air Force Historical Research Center at Maxwell AFB, Montgomery, AL.   These records are available in microfilm.
