1944 entry – Lowry Field (1938-1948) was a U S Army Air Force training base during World War II located in Lowry Colorado right outside Denver. Lowry Field was named for 2d Lt Francis Lowry, the only Colorado pilot killed in WWI combat; It was established on the site of a TB hospital. The sanatorium’s main building became the Army post’s headquarters, and the largest single barracks (3,200 men) was completed in mid-1940. We have no way of knowing if Bud was actually assigned to that barracks but the odds are good. Lowry seemed to have focused on Boeing B59 training. We know Bud was a gunner from his own accounting of the war.
