As an introduction to the grand opening of the "After Korea" section of the webpage, we are pleased to present this edition of The Picture of the Week. Here's The Story...
"In 1952, these three pilots flew from Shaw AFB, South Carolina to Long Beach Municipal Airport to spend the weekend training the reconnaissance Air National Guard Squadron. When they checked in to their downtown hotel, they noticed a lobby full of beautiful, buxom 18-20 year old girls, each escorted by Mama. Wondering what the hell was going on, the elevator operator told them that the 6th floor was reserved for the girls in the beauty pageant. Later they found out that this was the first Miss Universe Contest held at this hotel in Long Beach, California. Some people are just lucky and stumble into it..." -- Cecil Rigsby
