U.S.A.A.F. Combat Cargo Groups of the Second World War

 

10th Combat Cargo Squadron, 3rd Combat Cargo Group

In Memoriam

     "The real heroes of the 10th Combat Cargo Squadron were the 28 men who gave their lives for their flag and American beliefs. They were the bravest of us all."  

    "Hopefully this listing will serve as some sort of epitaph for thoses whose mortal remains rest in the mountains and jungles of Asia or in the military cemeteries of our country.  A monumnent to these men is the record established by the 10th Combat Cargo Squadron.  It speaks for itself."
