This is a great site. I check it every once in a while to see who may have checked in or left a note that I may remember. I also keep track of the reunions for the radar sites I had been stationed at during my career in radar maint. Thanks Byron

The Feb. 5 issue of AF Times reports: The second-most visible sign that you're in the Air Force will soon be a thing of the past in Georgia. Auto window decals will no longer be issued at Robins Air Force Base as of Feb. 5. The idea could spread to other bases as a way to save money and improve the safety of airmen and their families while they are off base, according to Air Force officials. In the post-Sept. 11 world, the decals have little practical use for base security because installations require drivers to identify themselves with government ID cards, Robins and Air Force officials said. New technology, such as cameras that photograph license plates of cars at base gates, also allow security teams to keep track of who is entering and leaving a base. There is the additional security concern that off base, the decals identify the car or truck as belonging to someone who is in the military or works on base. If a terrorist wanted to target members of the military, he only has to look at car windows to find a target.

Wonderful site. Brings back many memories of a wonderful three and one haft years (1974 –1977) at Hill AFB in Utah. When I was there in the 4754th RES, I was a Radar Evaluation Officer, starting as a 2nd Lt and leaving as a Captain. I believe the Squadron was being shut down just as I completed my assignment. Most conus radars were being transferred to the FAA and being retilted to support control of the Nation Air Space for commercial service. No longer a worry about Soviet air breathing threats. During the 3.5 years I was ask to go to Iran to site radar for the Shaw, go to Greenland to work the radars on the ice caps (both of which I was allowed to reject because I was married and had a young family), and eventually became project engineer for developing new testing techniques for the AN/FSS-7 (Fuzzy 7). At the end I worked with the civilian engineers (George Sales, Frank Kuba, and others) in the 4754. I left the AF after 4 years and pursued engineering in various aerospace companies. My AF experience in ADC with the 4754 shaped my life and I look fondly back on all the officers and airmen I worked with at the time. Are there any of those out there reading this that may remember me or were at the 4754 when I was there.

Request for assistance: I received an e-mail today from a veteran asking about U.S.-manned radar stations in Taiwan in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The sender said he had heard of at least 3 sites, but did not recall the names or locations. If any of you know of any U.S.-manned radar stations in Taiwan, please let us know so we can add those sites to our on-line museum listing. Please provide as much information as you can, such as the AC&W Squadron No., the Station Name (or nearest town, or mountain), the Assigned Radar Equipment, Site Dates of Operation, and so forth. Photos and other memorabilia would be highly desirable. (I think I also heard once that the U.S. *might* have operated a radar station in Hong Kong, too; if that's true, and if anyone has information on a U.S.-manned Hong Kong radar site, please provide that information as well.) Thank you very much in advance. -- Tom

File it under "Off The Subject But Interesting": I just heard about possible additional Social Security benefits based on military service (active duty or active duty for training) between 1940 and 2001. Seems to me that a couple of us should fall into that category! Check out www.ssa.gov/retire2/military.htm.

Like many others I have a lot of 35mm slides from AF days. Does anyone know of a resonably priced service that will convert slides to a DVD.

I enjoyed your website tremendously!!!! I was stationed at Tin City, Ak. 710th ACWRON from Jan. 1959 to Jan.1960 and used to talk via White Alice to some of my Air Force buddies at other sites along the DEW line and I used to wonder what the sites looked like and how life was there and now I know thanks to your pictures of the radar sites after 48 years. I had buddies on Indian Mountain, Fr. Yukon, St
