|The 13th Bomb Squadron Association is a not-for-profit veterans organization under IRS rules Section 501 (19). As such, contributions made to the Association are tax deductible. |
The objective of this Association is to re-establish and maintain the bonds of camaraderie developed among members of the 13th Bomb Squadron and thereby provide social and recreational activities for its members.
There are no dues to the Association. The Association sends out a request for donations annually. Active members receive the Association's INVADER newsletter three times a year.
Active membership is extended to all persons who were assigned or attached to the 13th Bomb Squadron, the 13th Attack Squadron or any other named organization derived from the 13th Squadron. The Association accepts as Associate Members those surviving dependents of previous active members and those veterans of other organizations who served with the 13th Bomb Squadron or any other organization having an affiliation with the 13th Squadron during the Squadron's period of active duty.
During the Korean War and including the period shortly thereafter, approximately 3000 men passed through the Squadron. We have recent addresses of about 875 men who are considered "active" by virtue of some contact with the Association during the past two years. About 750 men are known to be deceased. We have had previous contact with about 375 other men who are considered to be no longer active. There are approximately 900 people known or believed to have been in the Squadron who have not been located. (A partial list of those men we are searching for is posted on this site.)

Meet the officers of the Association.
There are several items of 13th merchandise still available via mail order, including red baseball hats with the Oscar patch! Also, news on where to find red blazers and red shirts. Click on the hat to visit Oscar's Emporium. But hurry, it's first come, first served and once they're gone, they're gone!
The Association has participated in various activities paying tribute to U.S. veterans. On December 11, 1999, the Florida Korean War Memorial was dedicated at Tallahassee. The 13th was there, and we've got a detailed report with photos.
