The Maine resident enlisted at age 18 in the Army Air Force during World War II and was assigned to Tuskegee Air Field in Alabama, where he learned to fix planes and helped break racial barriers. In January 1944, his unit, the 332nd Fighter Group, was sent to Italy as part of the Fifteenth U.S. Army Air Force to fight the Germans.
