Capt. Francis DeWitt Barnard, left, and Capt. Warren G. Millard, whose Army Air forces careers have been surprisingly similar since they enlisted in the fall of 1940, are home on leave after a winter spent in Alaska as members of "Alaska's Flying Tigers" squadron. Note the squadron emblem on Capt. Millard's jacket. Both men have been over Jap-held Kiska several times during the winter and Millard got four Zeros on one trip. Capt. Barnard is home for the first time since Christmas while his fellow pilot is enjoying his first long leave since he was here last Thanksgiving time.
