Men From the 362nd Fighter Group Play Volleyball

Subject

The men of the 362nd Fighter Group had to find ways to unwind in their downtime

Description

Pilots and grounds crew were encouraged to take their minds off of the war by their commander, Colonel Joseph Laughlin. He did not want his pilots to get battle fatigue or his grounds crew to suffer exhaustion so he made sure they had something else to do, whether that was a little R & R back in England or a little game of volleyball near the base.
