Joint Brazil US Military Comission
My job was assisting the Brazilians in their acquisition of American military products such as parts, etc.. They were buying some F-5s and C-130s from us. My other job was vice commander of the USAF Section of JBUSMC (Joint Brazil US Military Commission). My boss for that was Brig Gen La Salle. My first job was directly under USAF Headquarters. So I had two bosses.
I traveled around Brazil in our C131 aircraft visiting several of their Air Bases in my dual capacity.
The Brazilians are very family oriented and our USAF encouraged our cooperation with their “feelings”. Therefore, I occasionally took my wife with me when I was flying our C131 on trips to visit a Brazilian base. It was great. My wife was treated royally by the Base Commander and his wife. We normally stayed with them in their quarters.
I retired from the Air Force on September 1, 1975
