This is the uploaded scrapbook of Francis N. Duffey, recording his V-5 Naval training experiences at Gustavus Adolphus College (St. Peter, Minnesota), Iowa State University (Ames), and at the University of Kansas (Lawrence), from 1945 to 1946.
" Eighty brand new Naval V-5 trainees, with visions of props and wings, began their military life at a little college in southern Minnesota -- Gustavus Adolphus. There were no airplanes, and the books could be rough, but it was a good life."
