Today I discovered this Ph D dissertation available online. My father was a B-47 pilot in the Strategic Air Command. Our 1958 Chevrolet family car bore SAC decal in the upper corner on the driver’s side – – it was there from when my father was stationed at March Air Force Base. I’m glad I found this resource, and am looking forward to reviewing in the future.
