This is a tale of adventure and learning based on my time in the Air Force in W.W. II. I enlisted in mid 1942 right after graduation from high school. I went through the basics and graduated from Hancock College of Aeronautics pilot school in June of 1943. From here, I was sent to Air Force radio school and subsequently, after several specialty schools, I was assigned to a B-24 as radio operator. I served in this capacity in the C.B.I. For 270 combat hours. We were just getting ready to move to the Pacific area when the war ended after the B-29s dropped a couple atom bombs.
