Lawley, Jr. and 1st Lt Edward S. Michael, pilots in the 364th Bomb Squadron, each received the Medal of Honor. While commanded by Colonel Curtis LeMay the Group pioneered many bomber flying formations and bombing procedures that became the standard operating procedures in the Eighth Air Force. It suffered the heaviest loss of 14 October 1943 Schweinfurt-Regensburg mission, and for this reason was given the Nazi flag found flying in the city when it was captured by the US troops in April, 1945. - Lineage - Established as 305 Bombardment Group (Heavy) on 28 January 1942 - Activated on 1 March 1942 - Redesignated 305 Bombardment Group, Heavy, on 20 August 1943 - Inactivated on 25 December 1946 - United States. -- Army Air Forces. -- Bombardment Group, 305th -- History.,World War, 1939-1945 -- Aerial operations, American.,United States. -- Army Air Forces. -- Bomb Group, 305th -- History.,305th Bombardment Group (H) Memorial Association., Bookseller Inventory #
