    I was a non combatant Jet Instrument Technician but still was required to do Guard Duty. This is the only surviving picture of me from that time.

    For a kid just one year out of high school the whole thing was a adventure except for viewing the devastation wrought on civilians and infra structure by the war. My 12 days spent in Fukuoka, Japan on R &R was memorable however.
