      Jack H. Zimpleman, Staff Sergeant 458th Bomb Group, served as a tail gunner on a B-24 Liberator based in England and was awarded the Oak Leaf Cluster in March 1945. On April 9, 1945 his plane was shot down over Lechfeld, Germany. Two accounts are listed below:
      "On April 9, 1944 the 458th BG flew their 222nd mission to the airfield at Lechfeld, Germany. On the bomb run, Final Approach, flown by 2Lt Leonard Abramowitz, suffered a direct flak hit almost simultaneously with bomb release. 2 Engine went on fire and A/C went into power dive in attempt to smother fire. One chute came out while in power glide, A/C circled to left then pilot seemed to lose control, three more chutes came out aircraft then went into a dive, one more chute came out before A/C broke up at 10,000 feet. "All crew members except for nose gunner Sgt Allen Rupp managed to bail out in time. According to the navigator, Lt John Holodak, he had just let Rupp out of the nose turret and the two were about to bail out when the plane blew up. At least one of the crew believes that Rupp never made it out of his turret. Holodak, Zeiler, and Freeman were wounded by flak, but received treatment on the ground and recovered. The crew was rounded up and spent the final weeks of the war as prisoners of the Germans."
      Report by S/Sgt Elmer F. Grow, Waist Gunner. "This is a full account of what happened to the best of my knowledge… A few seconds after bombs away at the target, flak hit our No. 2 engine. We caught fire and were given orders to bail out. The tail gunner (Jack Zimpleman) and I went out the camera hatch. The right waist [gunner] was last to leave but we never saw him again. On hitting the ground, Wehrmacht troops captured me and took me to a nearby flak battery. There I seen, pilot who had slight burns, and tail gunner (Jack Zimpleman) who appeared OK. That night we were moved to a town and locked up for the night."
