BCT and “Permanent” Squadrons

Basic Cadet Training Squadrons-Flights-Doolie Squadrons

A little help here … what were the names of the BCT summer squadrons in 1972? And which flights went to which doolie squadrons? I can only remember my own (GUTS!) and C and D Flights for sure. And some of the names may have changed between the summers of ’72 and ’75 when I was a Flight Commander in INTERCEPTORS (in ’72 were they INVADERS?).
