11JHAT OUR GRADUATE "Gunners Are == As Bomber Jumped By Jap Fighter Planes" By THOBURN WIANT A U.S.-1IEAVY BOMBER BASE SOMEWHERE I N INDIA Apri'l 11. (Delayed)--(APJ--When an American bomber plane is jump e d by the Japanese fighters that prowl the skies over Burma gunners instantly beco m e the most important men aboard. The lives of all aboard depend on them. They must s hoot down the enemy. Keep him out of range, or else Because of the skill of the gun ners aboard these bombers there have been very few "or else" occasions over Burma. American gunne r s were at their best recently in a 55-minute battle that started over Ming l a d o n airdrome in t h e heavily-defended Rangoon area. Four U.S. heavy bomb ers scored hits on two of the airdromes three iunways. Shortly after they headed for home, they were jumped by 14 enemy fighters. Three of the enemy p lanes were destroyed, four probably destroyed and four damaged. No on e on the American planes was wounded. Only one of the bombers was damaged slightly. Five of the gunners who par ticipated in that battle'were Staff Sergeants William Snapka, 26 of Gradford, Tex.; Willia m Stein..: kellner, 23, of Oshkosh, Wis.; William Hufn all, 23, of Houston, Tex.; Jack Houston, 23, of Cleveland, Miss.; and James Demos, 21, of Cas per, Kyo. They were on the sam e plane, manning the w aist, top turret belly and tail guns. "I saw some of the 'planes take off a few seconds the target," Snapka said. "They wer. e on u s five minutes later. The next 55 minutes were the busiest I've e v e r put in. Those Japs made pass after pass at us, one plane right after a nother. So metimes, they came at u s in p a i r s '' Steinkeller spoke up, "One came in so close I could count the rivets on his p l ant. I could have hit some of the others with my shoe--so you can imagine what I did to them with my guns!" Their plane was the one slightly damaged, Fou r shots went through the rear, missing Snapka, as well as Huffnall, Houston and Demos. They were c redited with destroying one of the enemy fighters and damagin g some of the others. That's just a sample of what Ame rican gunners have done. There are many more. Other gunners in this operating over Burma include: Tec hnical Sergeant Edward J. Charlet, 2 4 New Orleans, L a.; and Staff Sergeant Ed>tard R. Bodell, 23, Pawtucket, R. L Radio-gunners. Joseph V. Leblanc, 27, New Or leans ; and Staff Sergeant Roy A. 22, Blackoak, Ark. A eria l Gunners Staff Sgt. Marvin E. Varnado, 23, Baton R6uge, L a.; Charles E. ers, 23, Flowery Branch, Ga.; Nathan L Wall, 28, Summerfield, Fla. GUNNE RS ARE DOING
