Hi .. My uncle Virgil Kitchens was a gunner on the Betty Jean. He was shot down on January 19, 1944. The way my aunt told it, he was able to avoid capture and made it to Switzerland. I have several of his pictures that were taken in Nebraska 1943 of the Betty Jean and crew prior to their deploying to ETO. Love the site, thank you. I wished Uncle Virgil could have lived to see this.
