Home / 384th Wartime Documents / Special Orders

"Special Orders" provide a great deal of information about the administrative side of running the Group. Unit and duty assignments, promotions (and demotions), leave and temporary duty assignments, can usually be found in these orders.

Documents are from two sources: privately digitized microfilm images, and digital images of original documents created by the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) at Maxwell AFB, the latter set signified by the letter 'M' in the seventh character position of the filename (following the SO number).

The documents are presented in chronological order, with the microfilm images preceding the "Maxwell" images. Both sets are included as an aid to researchers, as readability of both sets varies greatly. You are encouraged to adjust the image size for best readability.

Please also note that, in addition to the missing SO noted in the description of each monthly album, the "EXTRACT" paragraphs are generally missing, too: a reliable source for these documents has not been identified.
