66 US WWII Purple Heart & SILVER STAR Grouping - 301st Bomb Group
Super grouping to Sgt. Vern FUKA who served in the 301 BG, 352nd BS.  He was likely an original cadre member of the unit as records show he flew with the groups FIFTH mission on Oct 2, 1942!  He was KIA when his plane was hit by Flak on mission to Bo-Rizzoa Sicily on May 10, 1944.  There was only one survivor from the crew who. He was blown free of plane and spent the rest of the war in POW camp- Lt. Zahn.  COms with his officially government engraved cased SILVER STAR & PURPLE HEART medals!  Needs more research.  Great grouping to an early Air Corps man!
