seanmc1114 Posted August 4, 2014 Share #351 Posted August 4, 2014 The following pictures show men of the 2466th Air Force reserve Training Center at Atterbury Air Force Base in the 40s and 50s http://www.atterburybakalarairmuseum.org/2466th.htm First up is a shot of a staff sergeant wearing the new Air Force style chevrons on his khaki uniform along with a 10th Air Force SSI and what may be the transitional gold cut-out collar discs. The hat device also looks gold but appears to be the solid Army type to me. Next we see a master sergeant wearing what appears to be a brass nameplate. The officer is not wearing the Longevity Service Ribbon so this is probably dated before 1957 although the trophy is dated either 1055 or 1958. Good view of the brims of the officer's service cap on these two colonels. Two officers wearing Ikes The master sergeant on the left is wearing the Combat Infantryman Badge but no Army SSI The staff sergeant in the center has "U.S.A.F." stenciled in black on a white tape on his fatigues. Enlisted semiformal evening dress. Women's Mess Dress Here's someone with an interesting career. Livingston J. "Bill" Williams, Jr. enlisted in the Army in 1940, attended Infantry OCS at Fort Benning and was commissioned a 2LT in 1943. He served with the 93rd Infantry Division in the Pacific during WWII where he earned the Combat Infantryman Badge. After the war he reverted to inactive status as a 1LT then enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1946 as a master sergeant. He was promoted to Chief Master Sergeant in 1968 and retired in 1970 with 30 years of service. http://www.everworld.com/tuskegee/enlisted.htm LTG Frank A. Armstrong, commander of the Alaskan Air Command, at Elmendorf AFB in 1960. Note the overseas bars on his left sleeve and the badge on his pocket. I can't tell if it's the Alaskan Air Command or Strategic Air Command. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
