Happy SUNday! – Air Force Basic Training

My father-in-law (circled) Frank Tifft went through basic training at Sampson Air Force Base in upstate New York back in May 1953. Frank recently passed away at age 88 and while going through some pictures that we hadn’t seen before found this gem. After the Air Force Frank worked at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft for over 35 years as a jet and rocket engine welder – one of only a few that regularly worked on the SR-71’s otherworldly engines. We miss him greatly. January 2, 1933 to February 10, 2021.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by! – Chris and Carol
