Fort Wolters, Texas

As the Pre-Flight portion of training ended for the WOCs it was now up to the "Hill." (Later classes had their pre-flight on the hill when the Army decided to use the Old Pre-Flight area for other purposes.)

Notice:  These photos were of Flight School and Warrant Officer Training during the Viet Nam era.   Today, Warrant Officers, as a whole, are trained first at Fort Rucker, than they are sent on to their Specialty Training School. (this link will take you to the U.S. Army Site for Warrant Officer Training)

On the Hill, we had the newer barracks instead of the WWII ones in the Pre-Flight area.

Winter time in Texas is cold.  Who says it doesn't snow down south..

On the Hill (or after Pre-Flight) we had to buckle down to learn how to be an officer, learn aviation (the books) and also learn how to fly.

Once again we had to keep our lockers and rooms clean or more demerits and no weekend pass.

Let us not forget "Grundy Day"

Let us not forget our weekend passes.
We needed the time off to unwind.

By request, here is a Guestbook similar to the one we lost.
