1953 HOYT - Entry from wife, Elaine - 3-17-06 - Reading, MA.  My husband was born at Châteauroux Air Station in 1953 and apparently only lived there for 3 years.

Our son & I are thinking of making the trip now 'for him'.   We're finding this site to be a wonderful resource as we begin acquainting ourselves with the area.
