  • Subject: WW II Japanese balloon bombs
    In regards to the inquiry about two Japanese balloon bombs landing in Desdemona in May 1945, I can provide the following:
    Two balloon bombs landed at Desdemona on March 23, 1945. Another balloon bomb landed in Woodson, Texas (approx. 75 miles NNW of Desdemona) the next day. None caused any damage. - Steve Allen Goen, Wichita Falls, December 23, 2007
  • Subject: WW II Japanese balloon bombs
    I am writing an article about an event that occurred in May, 1945 in Desdemona where one or perhaps two Japanese Balloon Bombs landed harmlessly. Thousands of these balloon bombs were launched from mainland Japan in the closing months of the war as a desperate effort to achieve victory. Two of them landed in Desdemona or that vicinity. Do you know about this event and perhaps you could steer me to someone who could. What is the name of the local newspaper in that area if you know? I would like to place an ad for people who may have remembered the event. Thanks. - Michael Phillips, September 02, 2004
