When General Jimmie Doolittle took command of the 8th Air Force in 1943 he changed the "tour of duty" from 25 missions to 30. This is the list of missions then 2nd Lt. Vernon flew. On 24 April, Vernon flew as the Navigator and Lt. James Foster was the pilot because Foster needed to be checked out in the left seat of a B-17.
