(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Military Memories: Dad at Ellington AFB, ABT 1952

My dad, Fred Pape, wrote the following on the back of this undated photograph, which he believes was taken between January and March of 1952:

"Taken in my eager beaver days on the sextant.  I was shooting from the porch of one of the other barracks in which I used to live."

I know this was taken at Ellington Air Force Base, Houston, Texas. Dad graduated from Navigator Training School there in April 1952.  Dad went back to Ellington after his Korean War service (September 1952 to April 1953) and was training other navigators there when he met my mom.
