Abstract Winters (b. 1924) discusses his childhood in Hoytsville, Utah, including his schooling and family. After enlisting in the Army Air Corps in November 1942, he was sent to Fresno, California, for basic training. He received pre-flight training at Pullman, Washington, and Santa Ana, California; primary training in Blythe, California; and advanced training at Williams Field in Mesa, Arizona, where he graduated in April 1944. He also took gunnery training in AT-6’s at Ajo, Arizona, and trained for P-39’s in Victorville, California. Winters eventually flew P-38L-5 aircraft. He was at Hamilton Field, California, before being sent to New Guinea around February 1945. He was assigned to the 18th Fighter Group, 44th Fighter Squadron, 13th Air Force in Zamboanga, and flew 25 missions, including into Borneo. He discusses his missions and experiences. He was discharged in early 1946 and stayed in the Reserves for approximately 12 years. Mr. Winter’s civilian career was as an ecologist for Geneva Steel for more than 30 years. He also served on the State of Utah Road Commission, having been appointed by Governor Calvin Rampton. Interviewed by Benjamin Bahlmann. 105 pages.
