The Story of Duncan Field

The name, Duncan Field, is as well known throughout America as any Army Air Force Field in the country. It is situated in the heart of the San Antonio Flying Country. Grouped around it are the Training Centers for a large part of the Army Air Force. This Field has many important functions in this war. The largest part of its operations are concerned with the maintenance and repair of combat ships. Besides the Army Personnel there is a large civilian personnel working day and night on the vital job of “keeping them flying.” This book attempts to tell part of the story of each man’s activities here: the comfortable living quarters, the soldierly routine, the recreational facilities, the opportunities for church going, good libraries for enlisted men and Officers and, of course, the vital story of training to make the world’s best Air Force and to keep them aloft.
