The China, Burma,
India Theater of WWII
Dad was in the 18th Air Service Squadron of the 18th
Air Force. These were the guys who worked on the ground making
sure that our fighters and bombers had a place to land, a place to get
fuel and ammunition and food and lodging for the pilots. It was
hard work in the CBI Theater. Everything had to come in by air,
mostly over the "Hump".
That's how Dad got there.
After stop overs in North Africa and India Dad
over the Himalayan Mountains into China. He arrived in China 1
1944. He was a 2nd Lieutenant. As you can see from the list above
