Air Commandos gather for 75th anniversary of Operation Thursday

Former U.S. Army Air Forces Staff Sgt. Patt Meara, a B-25H Mitchell gunner during World War II, responds to questions about his role in Operation Thursday during a veteran panel discussion and breakfast at Hurlburt Field, Florida, March 5, 2019. Meara was one of three WWII veterans to attend the panel - one of several events held to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Operation Thursday. Operation Thursday was an unorthodox operation when the first Air Commandos worked alongside British “Chindits” to insert thousands of troops behind Japanese lines in Burma during World War II.
