Vol. XIV No. 9 ……. Cover: Aviation Cadets of the Army Air Forces are shown on our front cover as they pass in review at the headquarters of the Southeast Training Center, Maxwell Field, Alabama. With colors flying and advanced training planes in formation overhead, these thousands symbolize America’s growing power in the air. The cadets shown marching are in the pre-flight pilot stage, where they learn the fundamentals of Army life and the theory of flying while undergoing vigorous physical training. Tantalizingly close overhead they see the last stage – capable flyers, almost ready to receive their Wings. In between they will get 36 weeks of the world’s best trainingas they buckle down to their motto: “Prepare for Combat.” The photograph is special to Our Army, courtesy the Southeast Army Air Forces Training Center, Maxwell Field. ……..
