one amazing scoreboard

I can't find much about the missions, but one book mentions that he took out a flak tower and that was added to his scoreboard

and they used the Jeanne to tow glider bombs into sub pens

 P-38's entered the theater late in Dec 1943 and for several months was engaged primarily in escorting heavy and medium bombers to targets on the Continent. They frequently strafed targets of opportunity while on escort missions and in Mar 1944 began to fly fighter-bomber missions as frequently as escort operations.

They strafed and dive-bombed airfields, trains, vehicles, barges, tugs, bridges, flak positions, gun emplacements, barracks, radio stations, and railroad equipment, oil facilities, power plants, factories, and other targets in France, Belgium, and Germany.
