The dates should be January 1970 to January 1971. Can you change the dates for me? Or can you tell me how to do it myself? This site is great. I have additional pictures of Murphy Dome. Ill dig them out and send them to you so you can post them. Please respond as soon as you can. Thanks.

Tom and Gene what a wonderful site. The pictures are great, Iíll have to dig mine out and send them to you. Reading about the experiences of others brings back memories, some fond and some not so fond. I spent my AC&W time attached to the 717 Sq Tatalina in 63 & 64. I was with AFCS, ground to air radio maint. Some of the notable things that happened while I was in Alaska, the next flight from McChord didnít make it, there was a full eclipse of the sun, it was cloudy that day, President Kennedy was assented, it was one of the coldest days -67 and the earth quake, that was the our day to call home. Most of my time was spent at the upper camp, we had a great view of Mt. Mac and McGrath. There were 10 to 15 of us up there. since we were isolated we had to find ways to entertain our selves and we did. We played a lot of Harts, dominoes, shot home made gunpowder rocket up the hallway toward the 20 tower. We also made a tape we titled Alaskaís Lost Year, our humorous idea of what a year at an AC&W site is like. Iím glad I had the opportunity to visit the last frontier. Question, in the photo gallery there are pictures of what is called the Cool barge. I never heard of it but we had the Mona Lisa barge, are they the same? Also there is a sight listed as Takotna, I think it and Tatalina are the same, Tatalina is on Takotna Mountain.

This is essentially a repeat of a note I left about this time last year -- As Gene`s partner in this endeavor, I would again like to personally thank each and every contributor and guestbook signee for taking the time and effort to help make this web site possible! I would also like to publicly thank Gene himself for taking so much of his personal time and resources to put this web site together! It is very gratifying to see so many people take an interest in the USAF Cold-War air-defense radar programs. The many contributions -- photographs, squadron emblems, site bochures, maps, personal anecdotes -- are invaluable! Thank you one and all for placing your trust in us with your personal memorabilia. For those of you having similar material to contribute, please do so. We want to make the on-line collection as complete as possible. 1998 marked a great beginning, and 1999 was a great continuation -- let`s make 2000 even better. Again, thank you everyone for all of your contributions and assistance! Take care! -- Tom

I was a radar tech. on the pine tree line (red cliff, Labrador, pepperell) in 53-55). In 1956 I was assigned to Griffiss AFB to the 1st Comm. Sqd. One task we had was to install the radars on the Texas Tower off the coast of Mass. Have a lot of slides of that tower and the teamthat put up those radars if anyone is interested. It was a wild ride on a tug boat from Weymouth, Mass. to the tower.And the egress from the boat to the tower was hair raising. Anyone out there?

Great site. You have done a great job of putting together a lot of diverse material. I served with the 874th AWCRON at Inoges, Spain in the early 60s. Tough duty !! We have identifed roughly 125 of our compadres from those days and had a reunion of 50 of them last summer. I will pass your site on to them and hopefully they can contribute to your effort. Thanks for the good work. Bruce Shymanski

Most of the AC&Ws I served on were in Canada. Most of those were built & first manned by the USAF. I was at 34th Hdq NORAD Div in Battle Creek from 66 thru 69. It was great & I hated to return to Canada. I was in the RCAF/CAF for 34 yrs. We have a similar web site for the Canadian Pine Tree Line Radars. We are having a big reunion in North Bay the end of Aug/2000. Good luck.
