I am doing research on my late father whom was a member of the 6960th Spt Gr USAFSS. I am interested to find out more on the history of this unit and maybe catch a picture of my father somewhere.

After nine months at Syracuse in the Intensive Russian program and some technical training in San Angelo, I received orders to go to Turkey. I wanted flight duty, so I was assigned to some additional training and received my order to Yokota Air Base. Spent the best years of my life as a BAT5 in the 6988th. I was born in Portland, Oregon, but now live in Florida because of my best friend that I met at Syracuse. Tom Johntry was from Jacksonville and challenged me to move to Florida. These were the best years of my life. After getting my degree I tried to re-enlist, but the recruiter said I was too old. Since when is 25 too old?! :)

Am enjoying my read of "The Price of Vigilance". It hits close to home 'cause I x-ferred from Darmstadt to Rhein Main In July of 1958, so knew most of the guys on 528. I had a very exciting and rewarding career with USAFSS: three tours at Rhein Main, three at Goodbuddy, a year at CRB Viet Nam (the ONLY slot for a MSgt A20371-MA), two years at RAF Mildenhall, and two years at Offutt. I guess I enjoyed the C-130s the most: the great TDY's to Incerlik, Teheran, Athens, Italy and Spain.
I'd liken to hear from some of you!

My father, Richard English, was a USAFSS flyer, and an AMS. That's all I know for sure.

Our family is mounting a plaque at the veteran's memorial, Mt. Soledad CA, in honor to him, and all silent warriors.

If anyone knew/knows him, and would like to make a comment that we would share with him in the presentation, it would be very much appreciated.
