In June of 1944 1st Lt. Reese departed for England and France, assigned to the 10th Fighter Squadron, 50th Fighter Group based near Carenton, France, about 8 miles south of Utah Beach. The missions he flew were primarily low altitude in support of General George Patton’s 3rd Army and General Alexander Patch’s 7th Army in France and Germany, providing air support for the ground troops including destroying enemy trains, bridges, air fields, and other strategic targets. The last of Lt. Reese’s 109 missions was flown on April 12, 1945. His mechanic told him that they replaced 17 wings, 3 tails, and 2 engines on his P-47 “Jug” due to combat damage. He is credited with destroying one German ME-109 in a dogfight, damaging another, and destroying a third that was taking off from an airfield. Lt.
