This Battalion was assigned maintenance of a fighter-bomber base at Azelot, France. Although conditions of the field were such that it was apparently a hopeless task, a major reconstruction program was undertaken. The Air Force didn’t miss a single mission during a very bad winter, and the finished field was considered one of the very best in the Nancy area.
