    “There was a war to fight, and if the young people weren’t going to fight in it, who was?” George Prentiss a Korean War and Air Force veteran, spoke these very words when talking about the time he decided to join the air force in 1950. Prentiss worked in a mail room and as a soda jerk in Boston before serving in the Air Force. Motivated by the war, he persuaded his father to let him enlist in October 1950, a few months before he turned 18. He was stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base for four years as a B-36 Peacemaker piston engine mechanic, but separated when the Air Force began transitioning to jet engine-powered aircraft.
