A graduate of the University of Connecticut, Wilson Camelo is a major in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, where he serves as the senior public affairs officer for the 439th Airlift Wing at Westover Air Reserve Base in Massachusetts. While on active duty, he was deployed overseas to support operations in Kosovo, and served as a public affairs aid to four-star generals.From Booklist:
Although Harry Truman didn't formally establish the U.S. Air Force until 1947, its roots can be traced to Kitty Hawk, and it contributed significantly to every major military altercation throughout the next few centuries. This volume from the U.S. Armed Forces and Military Careers series does a fine job of tracing that history. The first 8 of the book's 11 chapters focus on major wars and describe the structure of the organization, including the role of women and minorities. Camelo also explains how 9/11 changed the airborne force's role in American defense. Attractively formatted with color photos, the book will make a fine library acquisition. Its only drawback: the title seems to suggest it belongs solely in a vocational collection. Although career information comprises the last few chapters, the bulk of the book is a captivating history of this branch of the armed forces. A time line, source notes, and suggestions for further reading are appended. Roger Leslie
