The Still-Troubled Air
Re your story of Pilot Goodwin [TIME, April 28]: many Air Force officers retained their reserve commissions in order to defend the U.S. in case of war. They have been in the inactive reserves, have received no monthly paycheck, have received no credit towards a "generous Government retirement" plan, and have been called back into service on an involuntary basis. The Air Force offers no security to these officers except a return to an often difficult readjustment in civilian life with always the shadow of a possible recall . . . hanging over their heads . . .
