Battle Honors

The 386th Bombardment Group (M) for outstanding performance of duty in action against the enemy in the ETO from 30 July 1943 to 30 July 1944. During this period the 386th Bombardment Group (M) attained the most outstanding record of all B-26 Groups in the ETO in terms of number of successful sorties flown, tonnage of bombs dispatched and enemy aircraft destroyed, while at the same time maintaining the highest bombing accuracy score.

TRANSLATION: We flew more missions.
We shot down more German fighters.
We dropped more bombs.
We hit the target more often,
--- than any other B-26 Group!

The Commander of the Allied Air Forces, Sir Trafford Leigh-Mallory credited the B-26 Groups in the ETO as being the most effective in destroying V-1 and V-2 launch sites, even though all types of Allied aircraft attacked them at one time or another.
