Milton B. Coon, boss of the EM in the S-2 section, made Master Sergeant. Continuing its heavy attacks on enemy targets the Group hit Budapest, Hungary, and its vital Marshalling Yards. This was in support of the Soviet advance into Rumania, a new turn in our operations. Although flak was heavy, intense and accurate we lost no planes. This made the mission a successful one from the stand point of those who sit and sweat, although our results were only fair. There is a big push on to get mosquito nets up. It seems like everyone is hammering and sawing to out wit ‘Ann’, the name given by the medicos to the Anopheles Mosquito.
