Ok I found Bob. His name looks like Porouk on the census. I think the census taker didn't know how to write a B. But it is him.

Flying Cadet Detachment AC Randolph
ED 15-20 Sheet 22-A near the bottom line 37. From Cicero, he's listed as Grade C3, Flying Cadet US Air Corps.

Yay he has been found.

Thank you everyone for your help and suggestions on where to look. Now I know he was at Randolph prior to Kelly.

Reply to BillC's comments of June 7, 2012:


Chuck Baisden joined Joe Poshefko & Ed Stiles in signing to become AVG recruits (by Skip Adair) while they were stationed with the 8th Pursuit Group at Mitchel Field, NY.

It was Frank Losonsky who was at Selfridge Field, Michigan.

Thanks to Jen Holik for successful sleuthing in finding her cousin, AVG pilot Robert Brouk, as listed in the 1940 census for the Army Air Force military training bases in the San Antonio, Texas area in April, 1940.  Bob was an aviation training cadet in the Basic Flight Course at Randolph Field and I've added him to our growing list of AVG recruits from the USAAC who were training in San Antonio in April, 1940.

The recently released 1940 Census (of April \'40) shows 24 future AVG amongst the many Flying Cadets at Randolph, Kelly & Brooks Fields, Texas (San Antonio). 

K    Atkinson, Peter W.
R    Baugh, Marion F.
K    Blackburn, John E.
R    Bolster, Harry R.
R    Brouk, Robert (looks like Porouk on the Census, spelling error or bad writing!)
R    Burgard, George T.
R    Cross, James D.
K    Dupouy, Parker S.
R    Farrell, John W.
K    Greene, Paul J.
R    Hall, Lester J.
R    Harris, David H.
R    Hammer, Maax C. Jr.
R    Leibolt, Edward J.
R    Little, Robert L.
K    Loane, Ernest W. Jr.
K    Martin, Neil G.
R    Olson, Arvid E. Jr.
R    Sawyer, Charles W.
R    Shamblin, Arnold W.
R    Shapard, Van Jr.
R    Smith, Robert A.      (?)
B    Smith, Robert T.
B    Wright, Allen M.

Other USAAC pilots recruited into the AVG were:

Baumler (Eglin Field, Fla.)
Bond (39-A, Ferry Command)
Hedman (1PG/8PG?)
Kuykendall (Eglin/Maxwell)
McGarry (1PG/8PG?)
Moss (1PG Selfridge Field, Mich.)
Probst (Maxwell Field, Ala.)
Sandell (instructor at Brooks Field, Tx)
Shilling (38-C, 35PS/8PG Langley Field, Va.)


This would bring us to a total of 33 Army pilots recruited into the AVG.  Did I miss anyone?
