A Tradition Since 1942


The 388 Bomb Group association was formed to insure the accomplishments and sacrifices of the men and women of the 388th are remembered.


We welcome members of the 388 FBW (Korea) the 388 TFW (VietNam) and the 388 FW (today).


2020 Reunion Update

Due to the coronavirus influence on just about every scheduled event in the country, and with great concern for our veterans, our Seattle reunion will be suspended until next year. While nothing could ever replace our cherished face-to-face time, we hope you’ll plan to participate in our “remote” reunion this fall!
