I'm looking for any information on my grandfather, Richard Moore. He was born in Telephone, TX, was a Staff Sergeant and was a tail gunner, but he's never really talked about this specific subject, and I'm afraid his memory isn't what it used to be. I'd just like to know who any of his crew was, the name of the plane he flew in, those sorts of things. Any information would be great.

Hi, I found any S/Sgt. Richard E. Moore was of 379th bomb group. Not sure if that´s right one.

Since I am currently away from my home computer, I am unable to look at the 463rd rosters. I will be back home the first of next week. I will check then. And Svat could be right but it could be that he flew B-24s instead of B-17s. I am assuming you know he flew his missions from Italy.

Svat, I appreciate your information but I know for a fact he was in the 463rd because I have some old certificates of awards and newspaper clippings that say it was his group and he has a photo on the individual pictures section on the website.

Swindy, I know that he flew out of Italy because out of the very few times he's talked about it, he mentioned he was in Italy and he's shown me pictures. If I remember correctly, I think he said the name of his crew's B-17 was "My Woman", but if you find anything different and any more details that would be great.

Okay so I found he flew with the 774th Bombardment Squadron. I hope that helps too.
