    Default Ferry Command air base abbreviations

    I am just reviewing some flight assignment cards for my Ferry Command men and I have a couple of abbreviations I can't make out.

    VK
    ASC
    Rich
    B

    Any idea what air bases these are?

    B could be Borinquen, Puerto Rico, but it was usually spelled Borin on the cards.
    Rich could likely be Richmond, Virginia.

    Thanks Col. I should have known that one. I used to subscribe to their newsletter.
