I came across this picture yesterday while searching through old family photos. I held this in my hand and had no history on it. All I saw was a young determined pilot who was asked to have his picture taken by the military. The seriousness in his face reminds me of my youngest son.
I showed this picture to my husband who remarked "This looks like he just completed his first solo flight and that is the plane behind him that he trained in" I think you are correct. Thank You.
If my father were living today, I know he would have enjoyed the song I posted below.
