The 92nd Bomb Group
The 92nd Bomb Group post war organization, like other WWII veterans’ organizations, is now experiencing the intent of the time machine. At the Norfolk 98 Reunion, we initiated steps by mail ballot to amend the bylaws, initiate charter amendments, approve the organization name change and other supporting changes, as elements of the effort to ensure the continuation of “the 92nd.” We are now able to focus on these lynch pins to ensure that the common denominator among us, “the 92nd,” will maintain its unparalleled legacy of war and peace time military aviation accomplishments for many years to come.
