Second Lieutenant GENE KOSCINSKI
Joining up in 1943, Gene Koscinski graduated as a bomber pilot and soon found himself in the thick of the action with the 780th BS, 465th Bomb Group based at Pantanella in southern Italy, flying his first combat mission in November 1944. Tasked with the destruction of enemy facilities throughout Italy, southern Europe and the Balkans, the 465th were crossing the treacherous Alps on a daily basis. And flying heavily laden bombers over mountains in winter, often under fire, was a tough call. During his tour Gene survived two crashes and lived to tell the tale. Transferring to the USAF, he retired from the service in 1956.
