T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, FEBRUARY I, 1973 Enlisted pilots retiring Only three be left "-WASHINGTON (UPI) The flying peons -- enlisted men serving as pilots -- are rapidly fading into oblivion; The Marine Corps is retiring its last four today. " This will leave only three enlisted men still piloting aircraft : in any of the services -all of them Navy chief petty officers. Almost all air forces around the world make officers of their pilots now -- the rank being more a mark of status . than of command authority, and pilots remain at the top of the -prestige heap. For example, many, of the men who piloted B52s from Guam to North; Vietnam were captains out raiiked by their navigators, who often were majors. But the pilots get the best single rooms on Guam while senior crewmen have com- pliined they are jammed into barracks -- like quarters. A't the peak of the enlisted pilot program, the Navy had 920 in 1950 and the Marine Corps about 500 in World War n. The Air Force ' never had any, although its predecessor, the Army Air Corps of World War II. graduated 1,125. The Marine enlisted pilot program dates back to World war: I. Over the years the pilots have been called flying sergeants, enlisted pilots and flying peons. The last four Marine flying peons are all master sergeants: Robert Lurie, 51, of Barksdale, Calif,, the only one trained in jet aircraft; Joseph A. Conroy, 51, of Havelock, N.C., who started flying with the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942; Leslie T. Ericson,, 52, of Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Patrick J. O'Neil, 51, of Imperial Beach, Calif. All four have flown in combat in the last three wars except for Lurie, who missed World War n combat.
