photo of my dad's buddies


Recommended Posts

My dad signed up with the Air Force in 1954. 

 

His basic training was in up-state New York.

 

I think this photo contains two of his buddies during basic training.

 

There is a sign behind one of the guys, but it is hidden and unreadable.

 

Does anybody recognize this location?

 

Can anybody put a name to these 2 guys?

I think so, but nobody left to ask.  All are passed away.  Can't find anything in writing.

 

My uncle and aunt drove my mother and grandmother up to see my dad on base during his basic training.  Rome NY is definitely within driving range of Pittsburgh PA, so it is most likely that Rome AFB was were his basic training took place.  I know that he was stationed on an AFB in Minot, SD after basic training.  Then he was on base in Korea and Japan.  He sent my mother good china from Japan as an engagement gift.  That china is on display today in my daughter's dining room buffet now that my mom and dad are deceased.
