Bari, headquarters of the 15th Air Force is a fine town. It is on the shore of the Adriatic and has fine port facilities. It’s buildings are either modern or old, but well built. The town has an atmosphere of activity and energy which is in contrast to other southern Italian towns. Bari’s Theater Opera, Red Cross Clubs and shops interest many of the Group personnel. Outside Bari on the Taranto Road is the United States Military Cemetery. Simple but impressive ceremonies were held there today it being Decoration Day. Colonel Fleisher represented the Group. Some damn fine men from the Group rest at Bari Cemetery. Ebreichsdorf factory was the day’s target. Results were poor. Capt. West lake was named 718th Squadron S-2.
