In this picture I am wearing an old style uniform in the late 1940s. It was called the Army Air Corps uniform for many years. It was replaced in the late 1940s with the new U.S. Air Force uniform.
I was assigned as radio operator on the new Air Sea Rescue Team that patrolled all the East Coast of the United States. All the men on our place could fly if needed.
