Abstract Hatch (b. 1921) grew up in Woods Cross, Utah. He recalls family experiences sheep ranching in Utah. A railroad agent, he was deferred from military service, but he turned down the deferment. He was drafted in August 1942. He was placed in the Airs Corps, and speaks of many experiences in the Fire Battalions to which he had been assigned. He rose quickly in rank, eventually attending OCS at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia in 1943. He eventually became the Fire Marshall of the 15th Air Force in Riverside, California. He retired in 1965. Interviewed by Robert Hatch. 59 pages.
