A-2 Painted Flight Jackets

Not all jackets had pin-up girls, cartoons or death dealing icons, the 392nd Bomb Group decided to honor Birdie Schmidt of the American Red Cross (ARC), by naming one of their B-24s, “Birdie Schmidt”.  To them, Birdie and her colleagues were more than donut dollies, they were a touch of home away from home.

THE WAY IS WAS BY BIRDIE SCHMIDT,ARC
