John A. Sells

After Vance AFB several of us were sent to Randolph AFB for a 40 hour introduction to heavy aircraft in the B-29. From Randolph, I was assigned to the 552nd. Airborne Early Warning and Control Wing (AWE&C) at McClellan AFB, CA. flying the RC121 Super Connies. Lloyd Reeder, Ken Rehg and Bill Mauser were part of the group. The counterpart operation was at Otis AFB, MA. After separation, I joined the Reserves for seven years and flew the C119 out of Willow Grove NAS, Philadelphia and Clinton County AB, OH. and the C124 out of Tinker AFB, OK. Along the way until recently, I flew some general aviation. I reached the rank of major.

My civilian career was in the insurance business and financial services. At one point I earned my MBA from the University of Denver. Pat and I have four children, eleven grand children and one great g/c.
