The China, Burma, India Theater of WWII
    Dad was in the 18th Air Service Squadron of the 18th Air Force.  These were the guys who worked on the ground making sure that our fighters and bombers had a place to land, a place to get fuel and ammunition and food and lodging for the pilots.  It was hard work in the CBI Theater.  Everything had to come in by air, mostly over the "Hump". That's how Dad got there.

    After stop overs in North Africa and India Dad was flown over the Himalayan Mountains into China.  He arrived in China 1 May 1944. He was a 2nd Lieutenant.  As you can see from the list above he had many duties.

I regret that I am unable to supply information about the CBI beyond what is available on this website.
My father did all the research. I only maintain Dad's CBI Page in his, and my grandfather's, memory.

If you are looking for further information, I can only suggest that you follow
the links from this website to other CBI related sites.
Good luck, and thank you for your interest!
