Abstract Moy (b. 1921) joined the U.S. Army Air Corps in September 1939, shortly after graduating high school. Because he lacked a college degree, he was ineligible for flight training and became an airplane mechanic. He was assigned to Rio Hato, Canal Zone, Panama, in November 1940, where he maintained B18 aircraft. He was accepted for pilot training as an enlisted man and received his wings and commission in 1944. He describes his participation in the bombing of Europe and recalls retrieving prisoners of war from Germany. He remained in the U.S. Air Force and retired as a Lt. Colonel in 1976. Interviewd by Benjamin Bahlmann. 163 pages.
