AND PHOTOS OF
MILITARY LIFE AT
OKINAWA BEFORE JUNE 25, 1950
My Air Force life started in 1947 at Lackland AFB.
My fondest memories there are the 25 mile hikes and scrubbing the
barracks floors. I bought a Harley from a Sgt, so it had a base
sticker on it. I was able to ride it in and out the main gate without
a problem, so I enjoyed sightseeing in San Antonio.
After Lackland I was sent to Lowry
AFB in Denver to spend almost a year in photography school. I really
liked Lowry and Denver, the photo school was excellent, had modern
buildings, and B-25's for aerial photography.
