I was inducted into the service November 1942 and reported to Camp Atterbury for processing.   From there went to basic training at St. Petersburg, Florida;  then reported for Tech School at Chaunte Field, Illinois, for pilot training in the Air Force, but flunked the colorblind test, so I was shipped to Kelly Field at San Antonio, Texas.

 

From there went overseas to Naples, Italy, for 1 years and worked as a dispatcher.   Came back from overseas to go to Japan, but the war ended so was discharged from Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1945.
