This interesting link was posted on "The Cold War Museum" Facebook page. The linked webpage shows some great historic photos of what the Soviets had for air defense back in 1955.

For Debra Keipp. I was at Point Arena from 1968 thru 1970. Never heard of the guy you are looking for. Never heard of a DDS Form 332 either! AF Forms 332 were used as Work Requests through Base Civil Engineers however.

Anybody know of a guy named Fred Bell who says he was at the PA AFS? Anybody ever heard of him? When? Supposedly he used DDS form 332 to report to higher command UFO activity while stationed at the 776 Radar Squadron in Point Arena CA.

To whomever reported error:
"Can not locate the 684 Radron located on Mt. Lemmon, AZ. I was a Philco Tech Rep CTSP there fron 1 Jan 1964 to March 1965. We commuted up to Mt. Lemmon daily from Tucson, ( Davis-Monthon AFB."

Works fine if you don't abbreviate "Mount" (Mt.) or if you use a unique part of the location name, such as just "Lemmon", or just 684.

My Dad referred to himself as a Scope Dope for years when I asked him what he did. I wish now I had persued he until he gave me the details. He is gone now and I am hoping that this site can answer some of the broad questions I have about his early career in the ADC. I know I have seen some of the patches on his uniforms that I have seen in the pictures here and I remember him being so mad that he would have to go to a SAC base from his beloved radar stations. His name was Richard P. Harper and he served for 23 years retiring in 1975. If you knew him, please let me know and if you did not you missed out on a swell guy.
