I enlisted as Fire Control Systems Specialist and did my Tech School at Lowery AFB, CO. 3 months after I arrived at Carswell AFB, TX that AFCS was de-comissioned so I spent 3 months working side by side with the crew chiefs until I was reassigned to the 7th CES. I was the last Electrician on Carswell when it was turned over to the Navy and was renamed NAS Fort Worth JRB. I took accepted the Early out and reenlisted with the USAFR 301st CES. I finished that enlistment and then was recruited back to NAS FT JRB with the 457 FS as Intelligence. I received the Air Force Achievement Medal as an A1C but was discharged from the USAFR in Jan 2001 as a Sargeant.
I enlisted in April 1951 and my squadron was the first to be issued the new blue uniforms. When I left basic training to go to tech school at what was then Oklahoma A&M, I was issued the blue uniform except Supply did not have a winter coat for me! My name then was Caroline Lindroth from Cooperstown NY. I'd love to hear from any WAFs from that time.
