SHAFTER, Calif. - If you've stopped by Minter Field Air Museum any time in the past decade, you've probably talked to a docent named Donald Westfahl.
The veteran knows every artifact in the Shafter museum; not because he memorized the placards, Westfahl graduated from the flight school when it was still an active base.
"I just love everything that goes on here, I feel like I'm home", Donald Westfahl said.
The nostalgia doesn't stop with the planes and uniforms for Westfahl he also remembers it as the place he fell in love.
Westfahl explained, "the girls come in on one side, the men come in the other side, when you meet that's your partner for the night".
Donald ended up meeting his partner for life at a Minter Field Base dance.
His uniform has long been retired and his wife has since passed away but Westfahl has found a new mission at the place that started it all.
"my purpose is to keep this thing alive", Westfahl said.
