The following line appears in the list Mark mentioned above:302 Depot Repair Squadron AAFSC MTO 528 NY
Many thanks to Mark for sharing this information.
So, in summary, we can add the 90TH Air Depot Group the the Chain of Command that I am trying to build. Thus far, using the input I have received from Mark and others, the Chain of Command my Pop operated under was as follows:
1.) 302ND Depot Repair Squadron,
2.) 90TH Air Depot Group,
3.) I Air Service Area Command,
4.) Army Air Forces Service Command, Mediterranean Theater of Operations,
5.) Army Air Forces, Mediterranean Theater of Operations,
6.) Mediterranean Theater of Operations, U. S. Army,
As I continue to gather intelligence : ) : ) : ) I am also wondering about the dispute that occurred in Congress over who should control the Air Corps. I have been told that two factions argued the case in Congress...1.) those who believed the Army should control the Air Corps, because the mission of the Air Corps was tactical...to support the ground forces, commanded by the Army. 2.) those who believed that the Air Corps mission was strategic, and that they should be operating under a separate branch, which finally occurred in 1947. Of course, Fat Man and Little Boy each had something to do with that.
The occupants of Tent #38 were:
Alex Brady Ohio
Emil Habeeb California
Richard Holcomb California
Johnny Lennhunt California
Parkalay Rogers California
Tommy Storm California
John Von Ludwig California
Please comment at your leisure, and correct anything I may have said that is in error.
Thank you all for your service!
