Military Monday - Leo Reid, Flight Training in 1944

This photo is of my grandfather, Leo Morris Reid (second from the left on the wing), with fellow Air Force pilots. Most likely this was taken some time between August & October 1944 in Merced, California, when he was stationed there for flight training. I think the plane is a BT-13A.
I don't know who the other pilots are in the photo. In any case, it's a great shot, from a photo album passed down to my Mom.

I'll have quite a bit more on Leo and his Air Force service in May & June. I have his original pilot logs (which is why I'm placing this photo between August & October 1944).
