The Military Service of James Everett Carter: World War II, United States Army Air Corps, Staff Sgt, 305th Bomb Group, Left Waist Gunner on B17 Bomber. From a biographical sketch by Charlotte Carter Schick: When World War II descended upon our Land all men between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five were being called to serve in the United States Armed Forces. James Everett Carter joined the United States Army Air Corps, the predecessor to the United States Air Force, as a Staff Sergeant. He was a left-waist gunner on a B-17 bomber. He was in the 305th Bomb Group which was attached to the Eighth Bomber Command, later known as the Eighth Air Force. The 305th Bomb Group was stationed at Chelveston in England. James Everett Carter flew missions over France, Luxembourg and Germany. When asked he related that on one of the missions he flew they went out in a group of twenty-one planes and only three came back. His plane had been the very last one to return that day. During that mission the right-waist gunner on his plane had been killed and his brains splattered all over his crew-mates, especially on James Everett Carter. James said he shot a total of twenty-six hundred rounds before that mission was over.
