Honouring the Pilots of ATC...
 
By the summer of 1944 the techniques of moving sick and wounded men by air had been standardised and ATC had acquired a large fleet of C-54 transports, its only aircraft suitable for long, over-water evacuation flights. In the Pacific areas ten or more of these planes had already been equipped to carry 20-28 litter patients, arranged in tiers, four litters high.
 
In that year a fifth of all the patients brought back to the United States flew by ATC aircraft. The program made a strong appeal to the imagination of a generous and sympathetic people, eager to do what they could for the boys. Air evacuation duty was not easy; the nurses and technicians who cared for the evacuees during the long hours of over-water flight bore more responsibility than their counterparts at work in non-mobile hospitals. But there was a peculiar satisfaction in the job, derived in part from the gratitude of men who appreciated the swift passage from combat or a field hospital to Oahu or - even better - to the United States. What it meant to the parents, wives, and sweethearts of the wounded or ailing men requires no rhetorical embellishment and no conventional documentation.
 
By 1945 the war was coming to an end and ATC sped up its mission to bring home the wounded boys who fought for our liberty.
