Abstract Hebert (b. 1924) was raised in Washington and Indiana. He was inducted into the Army Air Corps in February 1943 on "limited service." After basic training in Florida he was assigned to the 484th Bomb Group, where he met the rest of his crew--the pilot, copilot, navigator, and bombardier. Hebert was the aerial gunner, completing the crew of this B24 Liberator. He describes his training and overseas flight experiences including flying with the Tuskegee airmen. Other topics covered include his relationship with Colin Powell, flying out of Toretta Base in Italy, aircraft types and battle strategies, flak, bombing Ploesti, Major General Bill Keese, jet airplanes, and his postwar life. 79 pages.
