I am trying to view this book, but I can not. I am trying to find information on my father, JOhn Suchernick, Avn/C, Section I, 2536th AAF Base Unit ( Nav Sch) SAn Marcon Army Air Field, San Marcos Texas. He graduated on 27 Aug 1944. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

From my records, he was assigned to the 5th Bomb Group and 72nd Bomb Squadron. He was apparently also a pilot cadet at Douglas, Georgia prior to being reassigned to be a navigator.
