The Sweet Routine was first commissioned in Feb 1944 and was fitted out with mine laying equipment in its bomb bays. When it reached Bermuda, the 1st pilot named it Home James. Towards the end of 1944 it was sent to the Pacific. I don't have the book that tells me where it's bomb bays were refitted for bombing and it's 1st pilot named it Sweet Routine. Not sure where the nose art was painted. The Sweet Routine flew 78 combat missions and grandpa (Robert Schrack Sr.) was the 3rd or 4th pilot. Grossman came into the Pacific in February 1945. This was Grossman's first combat mission, but not the sweet routine's. He was not part of grandpa's crew. Grandpa's entire crew trained 3 months together in California. Got a new plane when they left the States which they flew to Hawaii, then 3 months later to Iwo Jima. Grandpa got command of the Sweet Routine in March 1945 and flew 13 combat missions, only 10 in the Sweet Routine. In the article Jack Graham flew 11 combat missions. I do not know if all were with grandpa.
