CCKW HOBBY

Post by Ben Dover » Wed May 13, 2015 5:41 pm

My CCKW Hobby started right across the street from our business at DOW FIELD 1945-46. The sign on top of my CCKW is a WWII relic from Dow Field.
The memories of 40's-50's DOW FIELD activity and GI's are as vivid as yesterday when I am around my CCKW. I couldn't have a better hobby.

The first CCKW's arrived at Dow Field in June 1941, the first Jeeps arrived the following year about the time the 43rd Bomb Group appeared.

Challenge Publications just published "KEN'S MEN" about the 43rd Bomb Group, 1941 thru 1943, covers their B-17E/B-17F period starting at DOW FIELD and follows the group to the Pacific.
