Summary: This was another tactical mission in support of the ground invasion. The 401st provided the Low Box of the 94th Combat Wing. While a visual bomb run had been forecast, clouds obscured the target as usual, and bombing was conducted using the new Gee-H technique, with unobserved results. No enemy fighters or flak were encountered.
