|Earlier days showing recruits arriving. The Air Force was only seven years old when I passed through these gates.|
|Two story open bay barracks that were in
use in the 40's & 50's and probably for several years later.
I believe this unit was saved for historical purposes.
|Arnold Hall in the 50's.
|Base Chapel, early days.|
|Drilling with the old barracks in the background, as I remember.|
|I was on this firing line late 1954 and recall it was very cold.|
|More obstacle course.|
