Lou Prucha WWII Service   
Flying Training for all Pilots during WWII consisted of four standard schools/classes (Preflight, Primary, Basic and Advanced), each lasting 9 to 10 weeks. When an Air Cadet was transferred to each new training facility, they were issued a book outlining that phase of the training. Upon successful graduation from Advanced Training, each student was appointed as a 2nd Lieutenant, rated as a Pilot and presented with thier "Wings".
