Description

The Air-Snoop was a base-run newspaper for the 493rd Bombardment Group while at the McCook Army Air Force Base, Nebraska. The Newspaper advertised dances, movies, interviews with officers, comics, and jokes. The 493rd Bombardment Group flew a total of 157 bombing missions, with over 12,000 tons of bombs dropped over Europe.

The Florida-France Soldiers Stories Project seeks to tell the stories of the Florida soldiers buried in the American Battle Monuments Commission cemeteries in France. Our goal is to honor and commemorate the brave individuals who gave their lives supporting the Allied forces, liberating France, and defeating Germany in the Second World War. Simultaneously, our goal is to teach the students who participate in this research project about the history of France and Florida during World War II, about the history of individual servicemen, and about how to implement historical research methods in their work.
