25th Air Service Group

Hq and Base Services Squadron 35th Air Engineering Sq 578th Air Material Sq


Colonel Rogers A. Gardner


"I have served with many outfits and hope to serve with a few more.  I shall be lucky if I am again allowed to associate with men of the calibre of the 25th.  It is the finest unit I have ever commanded, with a morale and a capacity for work that got the job done despite the obstacles that were encountered.  Higher commanders have always praised the work of the 25th.  The Group's support of the B-29s, both when pioneering early operations in India and China and during the final assault upon Japan from Tinian, did much to shorten the war."
