341st Bomb Group continued.
From February 1944 thru 15 Sep 1945 the squadron carried out missions over China, French Indo China, Thailand and Burma, New Guinea and the South China Sea. The last reported combat mission included 3 B-25s from the 22nd Bomb Squadron and 1 B-25, piloted by Capt. Walker, from the 491st, in an attack on the Vinh rail yards. We believe that Capt. Walker also piloted the 491st's last reported CBI mission, which was a leaflet drop in the area of Liuchow, China. The 491st Bomb Squadron was 'transferred' to Camp Kilmer, NJ, and inactivated 1 - 2 Nov 45.
