Judy Bousquet is trying to find out information on her father Howard Hovland who was a B-24 bomber pilot in the 5th Air Force from 1944 to 1946. Judy has a 5th Air Force colour patch that belonged to her father.

Judy would like to know what Bomb Group and Squadron he belonged to. Judy thinks he was at a place called Ieshienk(sp) in the Philippines, Tatchitiewa(sp) in Japan and Seoul, Korea.

 

Can anyone help me identify which Bomb Squadron
and Bomb Group that Howard Hovland was in?
