Less than three weeks before the end of the war in Europe, the 442nd Troop Carrier Group's, 305th Troop Carrier Squadron operated out of airfields in occupied Germany. With the end of military operations, and through its remaining days in Europe, the 442nd saw its mission change from troop carrier to transport. It was a mission that the 442nd, as a Reserve unit, would do until 1982.
