Promoted to Crew Chief
A Ninth Airforce Troop Carrier Command Station, England -- Tech. Sgt. Arnold Clark Turner jumped from high school into the army air forces, but lack of civilian experience didn't handicap his rise in the service. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Turner of rural route 2, Lowell, Sgt. Turner was recently promoted to his present grade to act as Crew Chief (one of the boys who really "sweats 'em out") in the unit of the IX Troop Carrier Command, to which he is attached.
This newest of troop carrier organizations, commanded by Brigadier General Paul L. Williams, who planned and led the troop carrier flight that spearheaded the Sicilian campaign, is part of the Ninth Air Force, veteran of the North African desert campaign, now United States component of the Allied Expeditionary Air Force.
To live up to the troop carrier motto of "Git tha fustest with the mostest men," crew chiefs who know their business are just as essential as good pilots. Sgt. Turner was promoted to his present grade because he is one of those who can "keep 'em flying," and his pilot knows when he takes off, that his ship is ready from prop to tail.
Sgt. Turner left the United States for overseas service the middle of 1942 and served in Africa and Sicily. His wife, Mrs. Frances Turner and their year-old daughter, Virginia, live in Tampa, Fla.
