The 351st Bomb Group Association held its 39th Annual Reunion in Jacksonville.
Activities included visits to the home of "The Grandmasters" at Naval Station Mayport,
the Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Veterans United Brewery, and the World Golf Hall of Fame
and Museum. Our photo album shares some memories of the reunion's events
and participants. The 2016 reunion will be held in Savannah, Georgia in June. Details will be
announced in the Polebrook Post.
For many years, Ken Harbour was the Group Historian. He co-authored "The 351st Bomb Group in World War II."
with Peter Harris. Ken also created a web site that contains additional information and photographs.
The book was expanded and reprinted in 2008 as "The 351st Bomb Group - The Duty to Remember";
copies are available for purchase.
Ken passed away in 2010. We are grateful for all that he has done for our group and for his friendship.
Crew Member Database
Our crew member database allows you to search the load list records to find out what
missions the men and aircraft flew on. Additional information on 351st Missions is available in our
Missions Section currently being developed. A new personnel search page
is also being developed to provide complete information on any individual (including the ground crews and support unit personnel) who was
stationed at Polebrook. Our database is a work in progress and is constantly being updated.
351st BG PX
The 351st BG PX features shirts, hats, unit/squadron patches and books.
Most of the books are authored by 351st veterans who share accounts of life at Polebrook airfield
and their wartime experiences. Proceeds benefit the 351st Bomb Group Memorial Association.
