I am the historian for the U.S. Army Air Corps 13th Troop Carrier Squadron, nicknamed
The Thirsty 13th, which from November 1944 until August 1945 was based at Mokmer Aerodrome
Today I received scans of photos from the collection of a radio operator named Carl Asberry Cook, Jr.
They included the attached photo of WVTG, I expect at Biak, which I want to share with you.
His daughter Carla gave me permission to share it with you.
