The Detroit Metro Airport Sheraton, Bomber Restaurant, The Yankee Air Museum, Eastern Michigan University and The Henry Ford Museum are all primed and ready to host the 93rd Bomb Group’s 2019 reunion.
The home of Henry Ford’s Willow Run factory, Ypsilanti witnessed the assembly of 6,972 B-24s by the end of war. Some of those planes were assigned to the 93rd. The use of women on the production line here and elsewhere created the legacy of the “Rosie the Riveters”.
We have partnered with Eastern Michigan University’s History and Philosophy Department to present our documentary, “Return to Hardwick”, at the Strong Hall Auditorium. Open to the public, our group will enjoy viewing the final product of four year’s diligence and hard work.
The 93rd has supported the Yankee Air Museum’s effort to preserve a portion of the Willow Run plant as a memorial to the B-24 and the men and women who built them.
