Did you bail out? Blown out
Did other crew members bail out? Some of them
TSgt Milton Deville bailed out before I did. His hands were frozen before bailing out. After he bailed out, I met him at Bonn, Germany and as far as I know he was suffering burns and a bad back. Met him in La Havre, France in May 1945 on his way back to the states
