General 'Hap' Arnold visits 321st Bombardment Group

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows General 'Hap' Arnold, the commanding general of the USAAF, during a visit to the 321st on 9 December 1943, where he inspected the troops and handed out awards.

This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.

Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
