Was a 292x1 at Darmstadt from May 68 to Nov 69. Worked on Dog Flight. Loved the tour of duty and the travel. Left in Nov 69 for the 6994th at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Saigon, Vietnam. I was supposed to stay in Germany, but a fellow Dog Flight 292x1 who was married and his wife became pregnant, switched orders with me. The order change was approved by Col. Davidson, wing Commander. I'd like to find Randy. I think his name was Randy White, or some other last name. Anyone know?

Reading the article in the Syracuse Post Standard about the airmen who were killed in the fire on hilltop I think of my father who was a Syracuse City Fireman stationed at engine 8 on the corner of Colvin and Salina St. He was at that fire and every time we drove by those barracks when I was a kid he would always say how sad it was that those young men lost their lives in that fire. It deeply affected him. How glad I was to see that they will always be remembered because I still say a little prayer every time I drive by. It may look different but for some the memory remains.

Served 20 in SS as MA MC MN at ground and airborne units. Enjoyed the flying assignments the most. Did not care for my last tour NSA. Worked as MN there in an Army E7 slot. Also enjoyed our time on Crete 1963=late 1966.

I enjoyed looking through the guestbook and seeing a couple of old friends from the 6916th SS from 1964-66. I look forward to getting in touch with them soon. Hope they are still well. What a great time I had doing the job we had to do with incredibly talented people like Conrad R. Schott, who I was privileged to have as my boss in the Sham Shop.

I trust you remember this tired old Gunner from our days at Omaha, Upper Heyford, Mildenhall, Rhein-Main, etc....I was wondering how I would go about obtaining a copy of your "magnum opus" on USAFSS and ESC....

I served as a W20250 Texas - Philippines - Puzzle Palace from 1961 to 1964.

To be honest, I wish I'd stayed in.

I just posted the following on the USAFSS RollCall website:

I am half-way through Vol. V and my reaction to the narrative is: "Riveting!" (pun strictly intended, lol!). Like many a thrilling novel I've read, I have to force myself to put this book down, turn out the light and go to sleep.

I learned the answers to a number of questions I have had for some time, such as "Why were Black Sea ACRP missions discontinued?" (The Turks kicked us out of Incirlik at around the same time other areas were heating up); and "Why did the 6988th at Yokota base all the back end crews at Misawa (and keep the a/c at Yokota!) for a while?" (Turns out it was recognized as a bad idea and discontinued after about a year).

I've said it before and will say it again; Larry has performed a great service to the USAF, the SIGINT/COMINT community and to the nation as a whole by capturing and preserving this history. Great job, Larry! Thanks!
