Published: Army Air Forces Instructors' School (Navigator), Selman Field, Monroe, Louisiana, August 1944
This was a workbook used during a training course on weather at the San Marcos Army Air Field Navigation School near San Marcos, Texas. It was used in conjunction with Air Force Manual Number 6, "Weather for Aircrew Trainees." The sections in this workbook correspond to pages covered in that manual. Even in the absence of that manual, the workbook explains and summarizes many interesting weather topics. Since it is a workbook, it includes hand-written notes and answers to some questions, which may not necessarily be correct.
From the Preface: The claim that it is important for you as a navigator to learn navigation weather is an understatement. The truth is, you must learn it. That's where this workbook comes in. By conscientiously filling in its pages you learn weather, and what is even more important, what the navigator does about it. Moreover, you end up with a handy guide for future reference. Therefore, tackle the job as it should be tackled.......with interest and enthusiasm!

This book belonged to my father, Second Lieutenant John E. Voisin, who was trained as a navigator at San Marcos Army Air Field near San Marcos, Texas.
