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.
