Although we know more about the 479th Sub Depot than any other attached unit, it is still a mystery to us. We can't say for sure exactly what their primary responsibilites were, but the photos below indicate that their duties included aircraft repair and parachute packing.
The unit had well over a hundred men assigned to it, overseen by just a handful of officers. However, more research is needed.
It is our assumption that Major Leroy E Everett was in command since he was the highest rankning officer in the 479th that we know of.
The links on this page listing the Officers and Enlisted Men that served in the 479th are sure to be incomplete and will likely contain errors.
We've compiled these lists by collecting bits and pieces from official records, special orders and from written accounts by the veterans themselves. We are in the process of trying to figure out everyone who served in the 479th and what they did. Our lists are a work in progress and will be corrected as new information comes in from our visitors.
