I spent 5years on the DEWLine (1959-1964) this included time on the Canadian as well as Greenland DEWEast. This was followed by a couple of years at the BMEWS site in England. I am currently spending 6 months in Connecticut and 6 months in Florida. I wonder if any old DEWLiners or BMEWS Personnel around would like to try for a reunion in Florida next winter (2015-2016). Give
me a shout if there is any interest. This is meant to include American civilian and military, Canadian civilian and military, and Danish Civilian and military.

I've gotten several problem reports about an issue in the What's New page. I've not been able to find anything amiss there. Could you email me at the address above with details if you're having a problem with What's New?

The Blue Byway in Ulm appears to have been the local service (NCO) club.

I am looking for a photo of the Blue Byway in Ulm, Germany. My father was in the Air Force and stationed in Ulm from 1952-1955 and he spoke often, and fondly of the Blue Byway. He passed away last February at the age of 81 and I am looking for a photo of the Blue Byway to give to my mother for Christmas. Can anyone help me with this? I appreciate any and all help. Thank you and Happy Holidays to all!

Tom: I did get your email (and one from Gene). My spam blocker notifies me what's in it, so I added you to my address book and we should be good now.

Anyone else: If you email me about this, put something in the message title that will alert me.

To Steve Spirnak: You sent me (and Gene) an email regarding memorabilia from Port Austin AFS that you saved back when the station closed. Unfortunately, I could not reply to your email since your 'Earthlink' spam blocker would not allow it. The short answer is, yes, our organization is interested in some of the memorabilia, particularly the photos and scrapbooks. (Gene can say about anything else.) I myself do not reside anywhere close to San Antonio, TX, where you are (and neither does Gene, although I believe he has in-laws in the Houston area). Anyway, maybe some of our members who reside in or near San Antonio could get with you to check out your collection? You and they can use this Guestbook to exchange notes, in case 'Earthlink' blocks them, too. Keep us informed, please. Thanks!

Capt. Davis, I think I remember you from Mt. Hebo. I arrived there in Feb 1960, a very new 2Lt supposedly to be the Radar Maintenance Officer. Instead, I was an overage.
