The China-Burma-India Theater
By Warren Kimmel


Presidential Unit Citation 29 January 1944:
India China Wing, Air Transport Command is cited for outstanding performance of duty in action during December 1943. In that month, the India China Wing exceeded substantially the tonnage target for transportation of supplies to China by air. The record was made on high level air routes over impassable terrain under treacherous weather conditions and through territory constantly patrolled by enemy fighter aircraft. Only fine teamwork and outstanding devotion to duty by the entire personnel of the command made this accomplishment possible. The achievement reflects highest credit on the military forces of the United States.
