|34th PRS: Home
Welcome to the Official Home of the 34th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron, ETO (1944-45)
As the air war raged over Europe, men became legendary for their courage and self-sacrifice. Schweinfurt, Ploesti, and the dams along the Ruhr are some of the places synonymous with their bravery, courage and sheer determination in the face of brutal resistance by the Luftwaffe. While individual fighter pilots received praise from the American press, and bomb groups were lauded for their bravery over the targets; working quietly in the background, alone and unarmed, were the "Photo Joes", the photo reconnaissance squadrons.
