Please help. My Dad is going to be 93 on Dec. 26th. He was a Pilot at Marfa Texas 44D. He's been wanting a cadet book, but I don't know where to find any. He lost all of his stuff in a fire years ago. If you have any ideas how to locate one...I'd love you for it.
Thank You,

If any of you are out there at Marfa at that time, his name is Bill Norlie. He was a flight instructor. Please email me at As I mentioned in the message above he will be 93 in a couple of weeks. I'd love to bring over comments, notes, letters from guys and gals he was involved with during that time.
Thank you so much!

My father "John J. (Jack) Harris" was in this class. If you knew him I would love to talk with you. Thank You!

My father was in this class and later flew a C-47 (DC-3) in the Pacific. He remained in the Air Force Reserve through around 1958, participating at Keesler AFB on the Gulf Coast in MS. While still on active duty just after war's end, one of the duty stations he saw was Atsugi Japan, which had been a major Imperial Navy airbase, and later became a major joint Japanese-American naval air station.
