Biography

As a young man, Brother Schaefer yearned to fly. He graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1917, was assigned to the 46th Infantry, and was detailed from it to the Aviation Section of the Signal Corps (predecessor of today?s U.S. Air Force). He received his training at the University of Texas, Kelly Field, and Post Field at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. His flying was done in old Curtis ?Jennys? and DeHavilands, far cries from the more sophisticated Boeing fleet he would later supervise.
