After World War Ias early aviation became an increasingly important part of modern warfare, a philosophical rift developed between more traditional ground-based army personnel and those who felt that aircraft were being underutilized and that air operations were being stifled for political reasons unrelated to their effectiveness. During World War IIalthough not an administrative echelon, the Air Corps AC remained as one of the combat arms of the Army untilwhen it was legally abolished by legislation establishing the Department of the Air Force. The Air Corps was renamed by the United States Congress largely as a compromise between the advocates of a separate air arm and those of the traditionalist Army high command who viewed the aviation arm as an auxiliary branch to support the ground forces. Although its members worked to promote the concept of air power and an autonomous air force in the years between the world warsits primary purpose by Army policy remained support of ground forces rather than independent operations.

My army experience might seem trivial in comparison to that of a man who joined the Marines and landed under fire on two or three islands, but it was very challenging during a formative period of my life. I went through an arduous training program for a demanding job. Incidentally, it shows how the Army Air Force met its need for officers to operate and maintain its radar and advanced communications equipment at a time when such men had been drafted out of colleges. It started me on a lifetime career in physics, including radiation safety, controlled thermonuclear research, the space program, and nuclear power plants.
