2 July 1944

The change in the old order of things began with the very first mission in July. The target was the Rakos Marshalling Yard in Budapest, Hungary. Although the Group had not bombed in Budapest since the 13th of April, crew members remember well that city as a hot target. On the occasion of this mission there was plenty of flak but not too much of it was within range of the Group. Flying as last Group in the Wing formation, the Bombardiers dropped their bombs on the Marshalling Yard through the smoke started by the other Groups. For the first time in its history the Group suffered the deep humiliation of having the Air Force score the efforts of the Group at zero. Captain Leffler, Group Bombardier, talked long and loud in an effort to have the Air Force change the rating to "no score", but to no avail.
