Troy Remembers . . . “ One vivid incident occurred on a Saturday morning after inspections. As “ Pope ” I was excused from participating in the weekly mayhem. Instead, I strolled through the barracks and offered encouragement. On this particular morning one young man was extremely distraught. He told me that he wanted to be a pilot, but was going to SIE. I urged him to hang on because the payoff was worth it. I ran into him several years later at Clark AB. He had wings on his chest. Not unusual except for the fact that the kid was a minority who, on that Saturday morning was convinced all those white guys were not going to let him finish the program. ”
