On Aug. 3rd, 2001, after 56 years, three crew members reunite in Johnston, RI. Roland Pepin, navigator, Bud Morello, tail gunner and Doc Dougherty, nose gunner from Crew #13 share memories at the home of Pepin. This reunion was made possible by Bud's son finding a web sight containing a war story that was posted by Pepin. Morello contacted Pepin and made Dougherty's address known. Pepin contacted Doc and set up  the three man reunion.

The search goes on for the remaining crew members.

Please contact (pep4400@aol.com) if you have any information or would like to help this search.
