Description: When R. G. Musgrove was just nineteen years old, he surrendered his life as a student at the Rice Institute (now Rice University) and joined the U.S. Army Air Force. He was promptly sent to the California Institute of Technology where he studied meteorology before being commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Eighth Air Force. After spending six months in Marfa, Texas, Mr. Musgrove was transferred overseas to the 452nd Bomb Group base in Deopham Green, England. B-17 bombers that flew strategic bombing missions in France and Germany called the 452nd home, and it was Mr. Musgrove’s job to let the pilots know what weather conditions to expect during flight.
