The Gig Sheet is a class book for advanced pilot training at Kelly Field, Texas. Class 41-F graduated on August 15, 1941 just three months before the United States entered the war.
This book was owned by Lt. Donald O. Lundberg, who is pictured on page 50. Lt. Lundberg made several notations about his fellow classmates after graduation. Thirteen were killed. Four of them were marked “Killed 12-7-41 Hawaii.”
The hometown of each man is given, followed by the bases at which he received his primary and basic flight training, followed by his occupation prior to entering the Army Air Corps.
