Interview with Everett Endicott – aviator World War II

October 13, 2014

Wonderful experience interviewing today with Everett Endicott, who served in the US Army Air Corp and US Air Force from December 1941 to August 1969. Everett first got his flying license in Redmond, Oregon before the WWII started. It cost him $65. With his experience, Everett served in World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War as an aviation instructor. He was instructor on all types of aircraft, from the P40s, P51s, to F84s and numerous other jets in Korea, Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam. Everett received the Bronze Star. He told me how much he liked training in dog fighting. I was most impressed when I met his wife Betty and learned they have been married for 71 years! I asked him what the secret is to a long, happy marriage and he said, “I don’t know.” They raised three children, one who is the mayor of Redmond, Oregon.
