Top Sarge 2nd did its job as expected with no special fanfare. It was an unheralded member of the 100 sorties club, a tribute to its ground crew; especially T/Sgt. Gerald Goulet, the aircraft's crew chief. It was one of the aircraft on the Group's last scheduled mission on April 26, 1945, against oil storage tanks at Schrobenhausen, Germany, which was recalled three minutes from base because the target had been overrun by the fast-advancing U.S. ground forces.
