"I was stationed down in Del Rio, Texas, going through school to go back overseas again in another bomber unit. V-E Day, we were right out in the middle of the sagebrush part of Texas, and there was nothing to do to celebrate. So, it just kind of came and was gone. But they stopped our training. We didn't go on. Subsequently, we didn't go overseas again, which we were in the pipeline to do when that happened."
