20040501 16AF History of the 16th Air Force

This history was written by my friend Bill Butler, who emailed me this:

You mentioned he was in Spain in the mid-1950s to help with the basing of
strategic forces there.  I used to be the historian for the organization that
conducted that mission, although in 2003 it was located in Italy (having moved
from Spain in 1992).  I put together a short history during its 50th
anniversary in 2004, as attached.  Thought you might be interested since your
father participated in a lot of that early effort.  The histories for that
organization are at Maxwell too.
