THE POMEROY GROUP - COMBAT Charles Schleininger corsair "Mission #15 & 16 - We were briefed for Steyr, Austria today but ran into weather over the Alps & bombed the railroad yards at Klagenfurt, Austria instead. We ran into medium flak & no fighters. We had P-38s & p-47s as escort. Flight time -7.8 hours. March 19.

Going off on a mission as frequently as we were flying can have an effect. One becomes nervous & apprehensive about the future. Having a mission canceled & being able to hit the sack does help to relieve the tension.
