My father who is 95 years old, was in 37th ADG and landed in Casablanca on Dec 24, 1941. I believe the 37th was formed March/April 1942 in Macon, GA. After aircraft training here, Embry Riddle,FL Charleston, SC, etc, the 37th ADG headed to Camp Kilmer, NJ to board ship to Casablanca on Dec 12, 1941.
Early 1944, he and 6 other airmen transferred to Brindisi, Italy to another squadron/unit to train "rookies" to assemble and prepare fighter planes for engagement. In Italy, he moved around to several different units he can't remember which ones. Finally arrived back home in U.S. Dec 1945. Time passes, memory fades...

Derek, The 37th ADG arrived at Capodichino Air Base is Italy in January 1944. If you contact the air forces historical research agency you should be able to get the entire 37th ADG war diary on microfilm. I may even have some of it as I am the unit historian for the 38th ADG. Send me an email at email@example.com.

I was looking for any information I could get regarding the 37th Air Depot group repair squadron in North Africa (41-43). My uncle was in this squadron and was kia during a test flight of one of the repaired planes. No body was found and was buried in the North Africa Cemetery. If you know of any information you would like to share, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much,
