Synopsis: This Air Force Colonel's Memoir is a collection of stories about people whom he has known, worked with and flew with during his span of 80 plus years. Growing up was an "on airport" experience among airport people, none of whom are ordinary. He enlisted in the Army during W.W.II at 18 and entered the Army Flying Training System. He relives with the reader numerous experiences in his early flying and living years in France and Germany. He met and married a wonderful young Lady and shares her experiences in becoming a Colonel's Lady. Colonel Hudlow volunteered into the new jet bomber program and also became a rated Navigator and Bombardier, an early qualification for flying the B-47. Reader will share his experiences as a junior officer and as he advances in rank and responsibility. He became expert in his profession and likely has as many flying hours in B-52 as anyone. He was introduced at S.A.C. Headquarters as "The finest refueler in S.A.C.". He devoted his Headquarters years to improving the B-52 fleet combat effectiveness, and crew safety. His first hand comments on the problems related to the Vietnam War are astute. He was very disappointed to have been denied command of a S.A.C. Bombardment Wing. S.A.C. wanted him to shepherd the B-1 airplane development. General Dougherty told him that he was the only officer in S.A.C. with the experience and qualifications to bring the B-1 airplane into the S.A.C. inventory. He tried to negotiate being a Wing Commander for a year then do the B-1 job. That was not acceptable so he elected to retire and enter the business world. He took a position with a major aircraft manufacturer and was very successful rising to Director of International Sales. He provides astute comparisons of commercial business versus the business of the military at levels from the Pentagon down. A fascinating read of success, Patriotism, devotion to duty, family and bonded professionals as a B-52 Combat

About the Author: Looking back into one's life and rethinking experiences, people, events, emotions, satisfactions and some disappointments is both worthwhile and enjoyable. I am grateful for many things and many people. First, my lovely wife of 63 years, our two great daughters, our many friends, numerous mentors, and the fine men with whom I worked, and especially those with whom I flew for years, my crew. During the writing of this story a thoughtful mood prevailed; it was enjoyable. I am proud of what we accomplished in Strategic Air Command. We participated in preventing World War III. My crew and I were proud to have served our country during very difficult times. In such a book about one's self it is difficult to omit the "vertical pronoun" (as it was called in Senator Barry Goldwater's forward to General Jimmy Doolittle's autobiography "I could Never Be So Lucky Again"). I have tried to limit that use. I use "we" often since a major fraction of my aviation life has been with my crew. We bonded, as happens in many military relationships. I was many times blessed by the fine people whom I met, knew, with whom I lived, worked, flew and to whom I listened. David Hamm, our Navigator used to say "Rick runs a democratic crew. He lets us vote, and then he counts the votes and tells us who won". During our crew days we were on the highest professional level. Responsibility was continuous, and heavy. Four 1.2 mega ton nuclear weapons, a crew of 5 other professionals, 6 wives, and 17 children, plus a fine Boeing airplane, holding nearly 35,000 gallons of jet fuel, all involved in the defense of our country combine to give a man inspiration to do things right, and well. It was serious business. Even so, there were times of hilarity and humor, for which we are grateful.
