No, didn't know him. There was a very large number of primary and basic training bases open in Texas at that time (Korean War).

Veteran, Korean Conflict

Our current Airstream is named for the submarine I served on during the Korean Conflict--The Rock, a radar picket sub. Guess that's another reason I like Airstreams, the shape.

Mine is named "Sabre-Dog" which was our usual term for the F-86D.
