I WAS ABANDONED BY MY PARENTS AS A CHILD
....OVER THE YEARS I FOUND OUT MY FATHER WAS IN THE USAAF... I LEARNED HE ATTENDED BASIC AND PRIMARY TRAINING AT GOOD FELLOW FIELD-SAN ANGELO TEXAS....
CLASS 43A.... AND NOW AFTER MANY YEARS FOUND OUT WHERE HE GRADUATED FROM.....FRED HARMON TRAINING CENTER BRUCE FIELD BALLINGER,TEXAS. HIS NAME WAS HOWARD B. SHARP.
I'M RETIRED FROM SANTA MONICA POLICE DEPARTMENT
(HAVING TO RETIRE DUE TO HAVING COLON CANCER) AND NOW
LIVE IN MIDLAND TEXAS.
IF YOU COULD TAKE THE TIME AND COPY THE WHOLE BOOK(FRONT TO BACK) FOR ME I WILL PAY YOU FOR THE COST AND SHIPPING TOO.

I was able to find pictures of Howard B. Sharp in two other books for class 43-A. One is in CAVU at Goodfellow. See page 53. The other is in Mister at Coleman. See page 41.
Click "Back to View Items" above. Then choose the action "Browse by Class Number" and select "43-A" from the list. That will bring up all the books on class 43-A. Then you can click on the CAVU and Mister books.
