Other Comments:
My father loved the Air Force but Golf was his passion after he retired. He played 18 holes of golf 4 days a week for 40 yrs. He and my mother (Billy Jean) had a great life in the Air Force and took advantage of every minute of every assignment.  They also enjoyed retired life with the same passion.  My mother made ammunition for the P-40 during the war days.
