Docent Spotlight: Bud Carter

Bud Carter as an aviation cadet c.1944

     Lyon Air Museum Docent Bud Carter vividly remembers when, as a young teenager, his life changed forever. “On December 6, 1941 my biggest worry was whether or not my high school girlfriend was going to go to a school dance with me the following week. The next day, December 7, my biggest worry became how I was going to fight for my country. When I went to school the following Monday, half the boys were gone. They were in Los Angeles, enlisting in the military. In one weekend, my life and the course of this entire country changed forever.”
