Happy Veterans' Day, Dad!

Happy Veterans' Day to my dad, Frederick Henry Pape, who served in the Air Force from 1951 through 1955, including five months with the 17th Bomb Group (aka 17th Bomb Wing), 37th Bomb Squadron, during the Korean War.

I've been posting photos from Dad's military scrapbook / photo album.  Here is one of him during his 30 weeks of navigator training at Ellington Air Force Base near Houston, Texas:

On the back of the photo, Dad wrote, "Just wakening after a little extra sack time last Saturday."
