446TH AIR SERVICE GROUP

With the disbanding of the 97th Service Group on 15 April, 1945 the 446th Air Service Group was activated. The new Group assumed its duties on 17 April with little change in normal routine. Lt. Col. Norvil Hinds assumed command on the group’s activation. Consisting of the 646th Air Materiel Squadron, 882nd Air Engineering Squadron and the Headquarters and Base Services Squadron, the mission of the 446th was to provide base services, third echelon maintenance of motor vehicles and aircraft and third echelon supply to the 20th Fighter Group in the theater of operations.
