Abstract Wickham (b. 1923) describes his youth as the son of a Caterpillar salesman based in Oregon, Utah, and Colorado. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1942, and trained in Utah, Texas, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Nevada. He served in Detroit, Michigan, before being posted to Casablanca, where he spent eighteen months as an aircraft mechanic. Discharged at the end of the war, he reenlisted and was sent to Alaska, where he met and married his wife before being discharged again in 1947. He worked at Hill Air Force Base, both as a mechanic and on the flight line, for over twenty-eight years. 26 pages.
