Cool Ride II

“Two Different Worlds.” This cartoon drawing by Master Sgt. Don Schmidt, long-time paint barn professional and corrosion control supervisor, truly represents the 1969 deployment of the 142nd Fighter Group to that “other world” called Alaska. The smile on that fat C-124 is a mirror of the smiles on the faces of the 114 Oregon Air Guardsmen inside the transport. This cartoon was featured in the 142nd CAM Sq. newsletter after the deployment. (Courtesy 142FW History Archives)
