The names of the two actresses were Evelyn Keys and Nancy Gates. I think it was Nancy Gates I was helping with her boots. Without digging out the pictures I cannot be 100% sure. Because I need more lines I will tell you a little about my military service. Basic training was at Parks AFB, California. Tech School was 1 year of Aircraft & Engine School at Sheppard AFB, Oklahoma. Then Altas AFB, Oklahoma for one week. Then Donaldson AFB, South Carolina. next it was Eillson AFB, Alaska for one week then to Ladd AFB, Fairbanks, Alaska. Then to Palm Beach AFB, Florida. Then TDY to Sheppard AFB for 6 month advanced tech school. From Palm Beach AFB to Tinker AFB, Oklahoma. Then to Keesler AFB, Mississippi for one year Ground Radio Maintence Tech School. Next McGuire AFB New Jersey. Next Daharan Air Base, Saudi Arabia for one year. Next three years at Ladd AFS at Weisbaden, Germany. Next Montgomery AFB, Alabama.
