I invite you to travel back in time in your mind’s eye to 1939-1941, to a time where one of today’s most important Air Force Base in the world was a barren waste land, filled with rattlesnakes and trees. Travel back to a time where nothing was wasted, and everything was used. Encounter Air Power figures that have rightfully left their mark in history, such as General Henry H. Arnold, and the role he played in the making of this base, and General Clarence Tinker’s command, and fate during WWII. I hope and trust you will find this as fascinating as I did when I first looked through the pages of a history report in the form of a simple typewritten booklet.
