My grandfather flew Gooney Birds in the Canal Zone. He was in the 20th transportation/ 6th Army Air Corp, sometimes referred to as the Carribean Air Force /Antilles AF / Army Air Force. I have evidence he was at Albrook Field at some point, though I believe he may have ended up at Harold (?) Field. I also know he flew between there and Trinidad. When he left the Canal Zone he became an instructor at the Reno Sky Ranch where he taught glider pilots.
Would love to learn more about the:
20th transportation unit
USO in the Canal Zone
Thanks for your time!
