783rd AC&W (Guthrie AFS) Charleston,WV Jan.-Mar.1953.I am so happy to find this web site. After just over 50 years I recently went back and found the site. Had some trouble locating it but as soon as I started up the hill I remembered the road. A nice gentleman with the WV Agriculture Dept. took me to his office, showed me an old photo, and took my Email address to send me this link.My assignemnt on the site was not very long,AF pulled me out and sent me to AFSS, but remember one name on the roster,SGT Willhoite, and have lost track of my good friend, roommate, a cook, Charles Caton. (Charlie, are you out there ?) This was one of the best assignments in my four year AF enlistment,and I had some good ones. Just starting to get through everything in the museum but will see it all. Thanks for `preserving the memory`. Jonesy

Name: Tim Hubbard
This is a great site.....My father was stationed at North Truro AFS MA. 1964- 1967, Capt. RC Hubbard. We lived on base and I would love to here from friends stationed there at the time. The photos of the AFS bring back lots of memories of my childhood there. We actually lived in the same house the gentleman who took the pictures lived in! It would be interesting to see more pictures of the Tropo site when it was operational- it was an empty building when I was there...also the ALRI site, there was a large dish antenna facing out to sea there...data link to the texas tower I suppose...will visit again, thanks again Tim

Folks, Is there any chance any of you would know someone who has a programmers card for the AN/FSQ-7 (SAGE)? I`m looking for the instruction set listing. I`m currently putting the Air Force `blue suit` programmer`s manual on the Web, which I wrote while teaching at Keesler AFB, 1964-1968. Thanks very much, Price Collins ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Send any information to me and I will see that he gets it.

I saw Bob Hope`s show at Tan Son Nhut in 1972. He brought Lola Falana, Redd Foxx, Miss Norway, Miss World, and a bevy of other beauties. It made this young Staff Sergeant feel a little better over the holidays. Who else saw him? If you`d like to submit a thought, check out www.hopetribute.org.
