Description

Thomas Reddington was born on May 7, 1924 and later enlisted in the Army Air Corps because he wanted to avoid getting drafted into the Army. He went through basic training in Florida and went through a series of many different flight classes all over the country until he became a fighter pilot and made 2nd Lieutenant. After a delay due to injuries from a crash, Thomas was deployed in January of 1945. The war ended 4 months after they arrived in Europe, so Thomas spent about a year in Europe working with the Army of Occupation.
