"TAKING THE BOYS BACK" Honoring the Pilots of ATC
By the summer of 1944 the techniques of moving sick and wounded men by air had been standardized
and ATC had acquired a large fleet of C-54 transports, its only aircraft suitable for long,
overwater evacuation flights. In the Pacific areas ten or more of these planes had already been
equipped to carry from twenty to twenty-eight 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 overwater 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
By 1945 the War was coming to an end and ATC continued at a larger pace its missions of bringing home the wounded
boys who fought for our Liberty.
