Before the war, Len Happ took flight school training at Lewis University and ground school courses at Loyola University. He also spent 4 years writing for his college newspaper. He was a prolific writer. As he rose in military rank he became a flight leader and an Operations Officer. 


From his air cadet training base in San Antonio, Len sent his girlfriend a picture postcard of a single engine training plane like the one he was using. He wrote that he had five hours of practice in it and that he hoped “to solo this week.” The model, called the PT-19 (PT for Primary Training) became the first military training plane for most cadets of the era. It was a two seat airplane for cadet and instructor.
