Memories….where is she now?

Austin, Texas-circa 1952

This is a picture of a young woman I dated during my time in the Air Force.  I can’t remember her name, but wonder about her and others from those halcyon days.  Where are they?  What are they doing?  Are they still alive?  I was stationed at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio.  We’d change to civilian clothes and drive the 81 miles north to Austin, the home of the University of Texas.

  The parents of the UT girls would discourage their daughters from dating us “fly boys”.   They felt there was no future with us.  They believed we’d soon be gone back to our homes in other parts of the country. 

Texas-circa 1951

My recollection is that the young woman in the top picture took this photo.  Dare I imagine that she still has a copy of it somewhere in her collection of memories..
