Unidentified man in World War II Army Air Corps service pilot's uniform


Black and white image of a man in an World War II uniform. He wears a dark uniform jacket over a light colored dress shirt and tie and a hat. The insignia on his hat indicates he is an Army Warrant Officer, and the winged symbols on his jacket, propellers on the lapels and an 'S' enclosed in a shield above his left breast pocket, show that he is a service pilot, warrant officer rank. Service pilots flew planes in non-combat situations. The most famous service pilots of World War II were the women who successfully petitioned to become service pilots in order to free men up for combat pilot duties, creating the acronym 'W. A. S. P.,' or 'Women Air force Service Pilots.' Museum records do not identify the man or the dates of his military service. This photo is part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life, people, and locations in Washington County and northwest Oregon.
