This time, however, it was for keeps. After formal ceremonies Sunday, the 1,200 officers and men of the 146th Air Transport Wing in Van Nuys made the transition from guardsmen to active airmen. The call-up of the 146th Wing was prompted by the Berlin crisis. In all, about 75,000 Army, Air Force and Navy guardsmen and reservists joined the ranks of active duty in the nation. Speeches and a parade marked the transfer from state duty to the Air Force. Brig. Gen. Robert D. Campbell, base commander, presided at the parade on the runway at the Van Nuys Airport." 146th Wing Color Guard parades in Van Nuys ceremonies.
