B-29 Operations Against Japan: A Survivor’s Story

Edited by Peter B. Lane and Ronald E. Marcello University of North Texas Press PDF

1ST LIEUTENANT DAVID R. BRADEN (USAAC)

B-29 OPERATIONS

AGAINST JAPAN:

A SURVIVOR’S STORY

Born in Dallas, Texas, in 1924, David Braden was a freshman aeronautical engineering major at North Texas Agricultural

College when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Shortly thereafter, he enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Forces Reserve, a program that allowed him to stay in school until called to active duty. His call came in February 1943. Much to his disappointment, he was designated for navigator training rather than pilot training due to vision problems. Nevertheless, he quickly adapted, finishing in the top 10 percent of his class and then going forward to qualify as a radar bombardier.

On January 28, 1945, Braden’s B-29 landed on Saipan,

Mariana Islands, with the first replacement crew for the 870th

Bomb Squadron, 497th Bomb Group, 73rd Bomb Wing, 20th

Air Force. During his thirty-five missions, Braden participated in the incendiary raids on Japanese cities in March 1945. As a result of damage caused by enemy fire, his planes made one crash landing at sea and four emergency landings on Iwo

An Enlisted Marine’s Perspective on the Pacific War

Edited by Peter B. Lane and Ronald E. Marcello University of North Texas Press PDF

CORPORAL ROY APPLETON, JR. (USMCR)

AN ENLISTED

MARINE’S

PERSPECTIVE ON

THE PACIFIC WAR

Roy Appleton, Jr., was a seventeen-year-old freshman at the

University of Texas when he decided to enlist in the Marine

Corps in October 1942. After completion of Marine boot camp at San Diego Recruit Depot, he was assigned to Headquarters

Company, Signal Battalion, 5th Amphibious Corps, and put into a new outfit, JASCO (Joint Assault Communications

Company). He subsequently participated in or observed five

Marine landings.

After a brief stint at Kiska, Aleutian Islands, he was sent to New Zealand to join the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd

Marine Division, which was making preparations for the upcoming invasion of Tarawa, Gilbert Islands, in November

1943. He still served with Signal Battalion, 5th Amphibious

Corps, and subsequently participated in the invasion of Iwo

Jima in February 1945. This account thus deals with his direct combat experiences in both of those operations as well as his observations of the abortive landing at Kiska and the fighting for Saipan and Tinian in the Mariana Islands.
