Cleaning up my Grandfather’s house and inventorying his estate, I found two different discharge papers, Discharged in 1943 then discharged again in 1947.
The '43 discharge showed:
Air school AC
Does not mention the discharge in 43
It mentions completion of Air training and the rank of Lt
and of course his discharge in 47 as a Capt.
My question is: was a discharge and re enlistment a normal thing for those completing Pilot training? Something to do with bringing them back as an officer?
Thank you in advance,
