    Default Post cards home from Stalag 17B

    Hello To all
    I have been doing some research on one of my Uncle's and I would like to share some post cards sent home by my Uncle TSgt Joseph Rachuna. He was a tail gunner in the B17 'Mrs Geezil" and was shot down on the Schweinfurt bombing mission on Aril 13,1944 and taken prisoner and sent to Stalag 17B.
    I hope you like them. I sure Do!!
    I was wondering about the Luft 3 post mark ,but found out that all mail went thru Luft 3. You can see Stalag 17B is crossed out.
    I have resently made contact with the pilot of the only B17 from the 545thbomb squadron to make it back that day(6 out of 7 were shot down) and he is sending me more info about that day and my Uncle!!!
    Is that Not AWESOME!!!!!
