The Air Officer’s Guide
The Military Service Publishing Co.
My dad was a ROTC during college and grad school, around 1958 to 1964 or so. This was one of those items from my mom that was in a pile of other stuff. Why it is in my personal library is a mystery. Part of this is that my mother can’t abide throwing things out. I have a feeling there is “Mary is a librarian, she would probably want this” assumption. I’m not so sure my sisters have similar random books in their library.
In all fairness, this is kind of interesting. I was obviously too young when my dad was serving, so I don’t have much first hand knowledge of military family life. My mom loved the time when my dad served. They were posted in California for about 4 years. No Midwestern winter awfulness.
Other than the book nerds among us, I have no idea if it has any value beyond that. As a library book, it is a weeder. It might have a place in a specialty collection. Military folks, I would love to hear from you. If you serve near a base or installation, does your public library collect military items? Please share!
