John E. Voisin Collection


Jack Voisin

John E. "Jack" Voisin entered the Army Air Forces in August 1943 shortly after turning eighteen. He underwent basic training at Basic Training Center #4 in Miami Beach, Florida. He was then assigned to the 39th College Training Detachment at Clinton, South Carolina. In April 1944 he underwent preflight training at Santa Ana, California, where he was assigned to be a navigator. He earned his flexible gunnery wings at Kingman, Arizona in November 1944 and his navigator wings at San Marcos, Texas, where he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in April 1945.

Jack was next assigned to the "bombigator" program, to become a combination bombardier and navigator. He earned his wings as a bombardier at Carlsbad, New Mexico in June 1945. As the war ended, he was stationed at Yuma, Arizona for training in radar bombardment. He was likely being trained for assignment to a B-29 aircrew for the planned invasion of Japan.

Jack was discharged in November 1945 and served ten years as a navigator in the Officer’s Reserve Corps out of Selfridge Field near Detroit, Michigan.
