Dad also said the hotel owner friend was J.O. Slaughter, president & general manager of the Gilmer Hotel, one of the nicer ones in Columbus at the time Dad was stationed at Columbus AFB, which was between April 1 and July 11, 1951. "He and Hans Estin’s father were on the board of directors of a couple of companies. Hans and Dwight ["Deet" Brooks; two of Dad's roommates at Randolph AFB] were roommates at Columbus AFB."
