A private civilian airfield gave way to the creation of Americas first defense airport, the training ground for the U.S. Armys Curtiss P-40 Warhawk and Republic P-47 Thunderbolt pilots. Bright and brave young men from across the country converged on Millville in the early 1940s to learn to fly and fight for freedom. Some died in training- others flew into history as heroes.

While in Millville, they lived the average lives of the countrys military men, playing baseball, flirting with the girls at the local USO dances, and attending Sunday night dinners with local families, creating lifelong friendships in a time when a young mans life expectancy was in the hands of Americas enemies.
