Amos L. Golisch

Home After 15 Months Flying B-24 Overseas
Lieutenant Amos L. Golisch, son of Mrs. Fred Ludwig, 410 Doty Street, has recently returned home after 15 months in the European Theater of Operations. 

After graduating from Selman Field Navigation School, Lieutenant Golisch was assigned to Liberator bombers with the Eighth Air Force. His assignment to General Timberlake's Liberator group caused him to take part in the invasion of Sicily, Italy and Normandy.  

While participating in the Middle East Campaign, the group was awarded a Presidential Citation for their part in the raid on Ploesti. 

During 33 raids with the "Flying Circus," Lieutenant Golisch saw 24 countries and dropped bombs from Norway to Italy; France to Austria.  

Many of these raids were accomplished by dropping bombs through clouds with the use of secret equipment. 

This action earned for him the Distinguished Flying Cross with Oak Leaf Cluster and the Air Medal with Oak Leaf Clusters. He reports to Miami, FL during the middle of November.
