May 1950 Wife Mari in the U S AIR FORCE

This is a picture of Mari home from Air Force Training in Wausau. Wisonsin. After this she was assigned to Chanute AF Base just north of Champaign, Illinois for weather observer training, then assigned to Long Island NY AF Base as an Weather Observer. In Basic Training Mari had trouble with an ankle injury thus did not have to march and the bandage on her ankle is a result of the injury. Subsequently during the Long Island assignment, the ankle was operated on and Mari was sent back to Wausau and she became a recruiter for the AF with assignment in the Wausau region. Mari completed duty as a First Sgt. in the Weather Station at Bolling AFB in Washington, DC. Following discharge Mari married my brother Philip Alan Young.
