Russell Strong Card File--306th Bomb Group Historical Association
Russell Strong served as the Secretary of the 306th Bomb Group Association from its founding in 1979 until 2007. Along the way, the Association held reunions, organized trips, published our Echoes newsletters with articles of current and historical interest and established this website for communication, education and research. The card file created by Russell Strong is a remarkable collection of data on 306th Bomb Group veterans and a valuable resource for research. He made remarkably few errors and the file is the best basic source of data on these veterans we are aware of. Below find digital copies of the cards produced from microfilm copies by our historian Clifford Deets:
The cards are presented as photo albums containing the cards for veterans with last names beginning with the same letter. Select the letter below and at the first screen showing a card for a surname of that letter, in the upper left of the screen, click the 'Index' button. That will load thumbnails of all the surnames beginning with that letter, with each thumbnail having the name of that man. You can then quickly scroll down through the named-thumbnails to locate the appropriate name. When you click on that thumbnail, the card will open full-size.
