I am looking for information on my father. His name is 1st Lieutenant Harry William Ragan from Mishawaka IN.He was a pilot of a B-17 and was assigned to the 463 Bomb Group 15th Air Force based in Italy. His first mission he flew was on 27 December, 1944. He fler at least 25 missions.

Is there a way I can find out which squadron he was asigned to? Any other information would be helpful: bases stationed, locations on missions, ect.

Dad went on to serve 28 or 30 years in the the Air Force and retired as a Lt. Col. out of Wright Patterson AFB. I have found some info. that my mom had keep when we cleared her house out after her death. Dad is in poor health and is not able to remember anything about his service.

Thanks for your help,
