Well, lets get this thing started.
I joined the USAF in April 1951 as a buck sarg. , I was an aircraft
mechanic in the Navy during WW II.
I was sent to Ft. Bliss to the 1st Guided Missle School to learn to maintain
and fly Radio Controlled Aerial Targets. We came back and reopened Smoky
Hill Army Air Base and started the OQ Range where we set up the B 29 gunnery
stations on the ground and flew the drones for them to shoot at. Later, we
set up the B 47 and B 52 gun systems and did the same thing. Last but not
least, we set up the B 57 Hustler Gatling system. My MOS was Guided Missle
Tech. can't remember the number.
My complete 4 year hitch was spent at Smoky Hill/Schilling. training
gunners, never got out of Kansas during the Korean conflict. You can call me
a vet, era-vet or whatever.
I will have some questions on my brother-in-law who was killed in a raid
on a field Hospital where he was a patient as soon as I get all the info
together, a day or two.
Regards to all,
