Tale the Tenth


June 30, 2008 by Thurman Blizzard

After flight training we were transferred to slave labor.  Got a gravy job in the Orderly Room which came back to haunt me a couple of years later.  Still had a lot of fun in Denver.  Joined a square dance band.  Finally got orders to go to Okinawa – I don’t think so!

I was very excited and, yes, a little scarred that day when I went out to fly my first mission. Will also talk about some of my adventures on future flights. Next week I’ll tell about my “social life” in Denver and then my cruise to Okinawa.

Tale of Eight


February 24, 2008 by Thurman Blizzard

Been a mighty long time folks, but I hope I am back for a while. Moved from NC to WV then had a spell of the never get overs. Nothing much exciting this week; mostly wandered around the farm. This week we’ll go Geneva, NY to start my Air Force career. 

About the author, Thurman Blizzard

I was born in 1933 so I've seen a lot of changes in my lifetime, both good and not so good. Now, I don’t think the “good old days” were necessarily better, but they surely were different. If you have a few minutes, I’d like to tell you a story or two.
