Abstract Woodhave (b. 1922) was born in Salt Lake City, but the family moved out of Salt Lake almost immediately to follow his father who was seeking work in Hiawatha, Carbon County. When he and his family returned to Salt Lake he was nine years old. He shares his experiences of growing up and of going to school. When he graduated from high school he got a job. Attending college was not an option because of the shortage of money. He was drafted and inducted into the Army Air Corps in 1942. He attended gunnery school and then was off to Europe. He was assigned to the 351st Bomb Group and to B-17s. Just as he was finishing his required number of missions, the required number was changed. An officer approached him and wanted to make him a gunnery officer. Woodhave agreed, but as he watched his crew members going home, he backed out and was sent home. He remained in the service for the duration of the war. Interviewed by Benjamin Bahlmann. 64 pages.
