Dear Mr. Maher,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has custody of microfilm copies of operational records relating to U.S. Army Air Force units. We searched the Air Force History index to the microfilm and located General Orders of the Eighth Bomber Command for 07-20-1943 through 10-11-1943 and General Orders of the 1st Bombardment Division for 07-28-1944 through 09-08-1944. Please contact RDT2 via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a search for the specific general orders you need.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
