Military Monday: Navigator Training at Ellington Air Force Base, Houston, 1951-2

Dad had 15 days of leave (which he spent at home with his family at 2093 Lunt Avenue in Chicago) in late July, 1951, before he had to report to Ellington Air Force Base near Houston, Texas, for 30 weeks of navigator training in Class 52-05N, beginning on August 12, 1951.  This is the first photo on his scrapbook page for that part of his military service, which gives some idea of how the base looked in those days:

He also had a picture of the firing range, with an amusing caption:
