An evolution from air defense to space defense in the story below. By the way, how many years before, "Unique Air Force Squadron keeping an eye out for N. Korean drones?" What would such a squadron consist of? Maybe we could call the conglomeration "Air Defense Command" ...

"Unique Colorado Air Force squadron keeping an eye out for N. Korean nukes"

I spent from 1960 to 63 as a radar tech(Radician) on the DEWLine. I had a chance to go back to the Line 52 years later (2012) for a serious stroll down memory lane. Great adventure. You can check it out at (Adventures from the Coldest Part of the Cold War.)

During the 656th Radar Squadron reunion last September, we had a tour of the old site. One of our guys made a video of the tour. It is now posted on our website for viewing. Allow time to download the file. It is sad to see what time and mother nature can do to an old radar site.

Only one, how I got out of Hopedale. I was due out but no H-21's for some time. Bad weather. C-47's dropping supplies, including cartons of eggs (aaauUUUGGHH), by parchute One day a Bush Pilot, in an Otter, landed down on the ice. He was headed down to Goose Bay. After a short conference, Commander told me, "You got a ride, pack your bag and get outta here!" I didn't walk or trot....I ran!
