Kenny Cox was commissioned in July 42
and discharged in Nov 46. He trained at Luke Air Force Base
and Bakersfield. He grew up in Springfield Oregon and was a
five sport letterman his senior year in high school. In high
school he never lost a boxing match and was the Pacific Coast Golden
Gloves Champion, around 1935. During the war, he buzzed a Navy ship
and was grounded for one week. Someone who knew my Dad may say, ah,
that was Cox alright. I talked to an ole high school buddy of
his and he had paid my dad a visit but my Dad could not take him up
because of the grounding incident. My Dad had talked the
colonel into letting him taking his friend up, but he had to do the
Colonel's laundry first! The three, two pilots and his friend flew
to Guam. His friend was sitting between the pilots on a wooden box.
Experienced pilots could tell me what type of plane by this
description. I would like to know just for historical purposes.
My Dad was killed in a logging accident in Oregon when I was nine years old so some of the info is sketchy. I am trying to put as much info together as I can.
