This webpage is dedicated to the men of the 6th Bomb Group and to those who supported them
in the field and at home. The Group was based on the island of Tinian during WWII and
participated in the war effort against Japan during 1944-45. The Group, was part of the 313th
Bomb Wing, 20th Air Force. Along with other groups based on Tinian, Saipan and Guam, they were
responsible for the bombing campaign that finally brought an end to the war. Although many
lives were lost - on both sides - these efforts saved the millions of lives that would have
been lost in an invasion of the mainland.
