Abstract Low (b. 1919) taught elementary school from 1938-1940, then worked as a telegrapher for the railroad. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in January 1942, trained at Hamilton Field, and chose to enter cadet training to become a pilot, even though he had secured a position in the Army Air Corps Band. He graduated from advanced training at Valdosta in the class of '43-G in July 1943 as a second lieutenant, then entered airplane commander training in Montgomery. He flew across the Atlantic via South America in 1944 and was stationed in Spinazolla, Italy. He was awarded both an air medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross in July 1944 for a mission over Ploesti. He flew missions throughout Europe, and returned to the United States after completing 51 combat missions. He was assigned as a flight instructor in advanced training at Luke Field. He left the service as a First Lieutenant in May 1945. Interviewed by Benjamin Bahlmann. 112 pages.
