Abstract Forbes (b. 1922) recalls his graduation from Davis High School in 1940 and attendance at Weber College prior to answering an advertisement by the government for "mechanic learners." After a brief period of training he was transferred to the Salt Lake Army Air Base where he and his fellow-workers helped ready lend-lease planes for delivery to England. He served at various bases around the U. S. before being shipped to Casablanca in North Africa, where he remained until his discharge in March 1946. 35 pages.
