    Dad said it wasn't all flying around............maintaining these generators was his job when he was not in the plane.

    That's the "young fellow" in this pic also.

    Do you have any idea when and where this photo was taken?

    The generator photo was Okinawa, 1945. The group photo was in one of his training schools, they sent him to 4. He is pretty sure it is Sioux Falls, South Dakota - radio operators school in 1944.

    I agree with Justin. Looking at the pics is one thing. Having pops tell you about them is special.
