SMGQ-0424 TimberWolf Redeployment memo from General Terry Allen August 25 1945 Post Atomic Bomb Drop


1 in stock


An interesting original copy. It speaks to the original plan of the Timberwolves being part of the invasion of Japan but then getting reassigned to further or continued occupational duties in Germany. The change surely stemming from the two atomic bomb drops and the likelihood of Japan Surrendering.  Includes the copied signature of General Terry Allen and the famous phrase ” Noting in hell can stop the TimberWolves.”


From the family of  2nd LT B-17 Bombardier Richard Fetter. Fetter was assigned to the 92nd Bombardment Group (H) Army Air Forces on August 25th 1944. He survived the war and completed 35 Bombing missions over Europe including Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Nurmburg, Cologne and many others. He was awarded the Air Medal with 5 Oakleaf Clusters. It is unknown why Fetter had Timberwolf post surrender documents but he may have been reassigned after he was no longer needed as an active bomber crew member.  Or, perhaps he had a friend or relative in the Timberwolves.
