The 307th Bombardment Group (HV) Association, Inc., The Long Rangers


307th Bomb Group B-24
This web site has been setup to honor all the men of the 307th Bombardment Group (and 307th Bomb Wing from Korea) for their valiant service to their country during World War II from April 1942 to January 1946. The 307th Bomb Group (H) completed 625 Missions in the Pacific Theater, participated in 11 Campaigns and received 2 Distinguished Unit Citations.

The 307th Bomb Group was part of the 13th Air Force and consisted

307th Bomb Group B-24
of the 370th, 371st, 372nd, and 424th Squadrons. The group was known as the "The Long Rangers" due to their long missions over long open stretches of the Pacific including missions to Truk, Yap, Palau, Philippines and Balikpapan, Borneo (the Ploesti raid of the Pacific war—the unescorted mission against vital oil refineries at Balikpapan, Borneo). Some of the missions were over 17 hour unescorted round trips over open water with no landmarks. However, the 307th Bomb Group never received the press, fame and accolades that we piled on the bomb groups in Europe due to their remote theatre of operation and the fact that many of their missions were controlled by the Navy. This site has been created to preserve and document the history of the 307th Bomb Group.
