This site is also dedicated to the memories of John R. Gottschalk (776th) and Robert N. Hoskinson (778th) without whom it would not have been possible to offer you, our visitor, such a rich and varied collection of information, photos and documentation about the 464th Bombardment Group. I am thankful to have had the privilege of counting these fine gentlemen as my friends. God bless and keep them both until we meet again.
