Looking back on CAFB's Striking Snakes

Recently, retired Maj. Thomas Youngsworth donated the above historical documents which had been given to him by his father, retired Lt. Col. Carl Youngsworth. These pieces of heritage highlight the early days of the 50th FTS after its activation following Pearl Harbor. Colonel Youngsworth was a captain at the time in this squadron and collected these pieces of memorabilia which have now been returned to the squadron.
