Name: Jerry Long
I came across your web site while looking for data on the old magnetron tube used in the FPS-6 Radar. I served in the Air Force at the 750th Radar SQ at Boron AFS California for 2 and a half years from 1966-1968 time frame. This sure brings back a lot of old memories. I reconized two names on the personell roster from the 750th. The photo take looking up the road from the highway reminds me of the time I walked down the road to hitchhike home to the Los Angeles area so many times during my stay there. It`s interesting that the place has been turned into a prison. Some of us used to think it already was. Jerry Long

I have info on the base clean-up of the 753rd AC&W Sqdn. in Sault Ste. Marie. MI. Husband, Donald A. Williams, NCOIC of Operations, died of Luekemia, the base wells were full of contaminates, If you have a claim in at the VA and were stationed at the Sault, and you have one or another type of cancer,this report may help you prove your claim. Donald was stationed there from 1969 to retirement in 1974. I have not had a chance to look at all of the info in this web site but I plan to spend lots of time looking at it all, and I thank William Gabay for telling me of the site. Thanks for all the work and man hours for getting this all out for us to enjoy. Loretta Williams

Name: Capt Billy Wade
Thank you for such a tremendous site. From 1974-77, my family was stationed at Bucks Harbor AFS (SAGE), Maine. With your site, I was able to see what became of that very special place (I was age five thru eight at that time). Nonetheless, radar must have gotten into my blood. I was stationed at Thule, Greenland (BMEWS) from June 97-June 98. Theres something about remote radar locations that make them special. Hopefully, one day (God willing) I`ll have an opportunity to command the Clear squadron (knock on wood!). Best wishes, Capt Billy Wade, USAF, Cape Canaveral AFS, FL.
