Alfred C. Fox Jr - 301st Wing

My dad was in 301 in mid 50s at Barksdale AFB in Bossier City La. I went to elementary, junior and high school there. Some of the best days of my life. Also lived in Japan, all over the USA and Bermuda. My dad started flying at age 14 in a glider his brothers built from plans in Popular Mechanics. 1930s. He was from Springfield Or. Went to University Of Oregon. Then joined RCAF became a Captain. Then switched to USA when we entered the war. he went Europe flying B24s as a captain. After his tour trained pilots in Fl. Then to japan flying P51s. Back in states started flying KC97s in Louisiana then off to Bermuda and eventually retirement. It didn't stop there while in Bermuda he and my mother discovered sailboats. Plans were made. So for the next 30 years they sailed around the world three times. Where on the third trip my mother passed away. She was a blue water lady. Together they fought off pirates and were captured by foreign governments. One time Berry Goldwater had to spring them. That's a whole different story. This is where it starts again. When Dad got home boating wasn't the same. So he called me to see if I had some spare time. You guessed it, we built him a home and built an airplane. By now hes in his 70s. He flew it till he was 90. One trip we went from Florida to Washington State to see see his mother-in-law. She was in her 90s. He wanted to tell her how much he loved her daughter. Well all things have to end some where. I lost my hero Lt Col Alfred C. Fox June 26 2009. Some people like my dad were born with wings, later they grew legs they needed them to get to the airport. Sorry I'm a little windy about Dad and Mom. Just miss them and like telling people about them. Alfred C Fox Jr Alfred C.
