According to the relevant part of the pilots biography (see #5): "Willard was discharged in 1948, only to reenter active duty later that year, when he earned his pilot wings and was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He served as a fighter pilot with the 60th Fighter Squadron at Otis Air Force Base in Massachusetts for two years before again being relieved from active duty."
In 1947, the 60th FS transferred to Roswell Army Air Field, New Mexico and soon afterward, in June 1948, converted to the Republic F-84 Thunderjet. In November 1948, the 60th FS transferred to Otis Air Force Base, Massachusetts and by June of the following year  had completed a conversion to the new North American F-86 Sabre".
