Checkertail Final Reunion

Commemorative mugs sit at the ready Sept. 26 for those in attendance of the 325th Fighter Group Checkertail Reunion. The Airmen of the 325th FG fought to defeat Axis Powers during World War II across North Africa, Italy, France, Germany and Eastern Europe. The 325th FG destroyed 537 enemy aircraft in aerial combat, 350 enemy aircraft on the ground, were awarded two Distinguished Unit citations and had 27 aces recognized during two years of combat. Their motto, "Locare et Liquidare", meaning Locate and Liquidate, brilliantly described the Checkertails' mission, focus and correspondingly exceptional results.
