Was stationed at the Fleet Sonar School in 69 and 70. Great seeing the photographs you have. I can tell my viewing Google's satellite images I wouldn't recognize the place. I lived right across the street from the dog track. I can still hear the theme song from Bridge Over The River Kwai blaring from the loudspeakers at the track.

I was at HAFB in 1970 at one of the sites there as a 16D. MAny years later I was in B 3/7 Schweinfurt as the Commo NCOIC ( 80-84 ). I didn't mnetion that I was a 16D till I had been there for about a year. When our site was being upgraded I messed with the engineer battalion that was there by having one of the Deltas come over to the motor pool and telling me a launcher needed a jump start. The look those engineers gave us as they watched us go down range was priceless

My dad worked on HAWK missiles. In 1962, we PCS's from Ft Bliss to Laurel MD, just outside Ft Meade. We had been there only a couple of weeks when dad came home and told us he was leaving, an army truck was waiting for him to pack. A month or so later, the army moved us into Ft Meade housing and in the early spring of 1963, we moved down to Key West, living off base near Smathers Beach, I think dad said he worked there. A few weeks after we moved to our house near the beach, we moved into Navy Housing in Key West. Think dad said we were the first army family to live in Navy housing there. We left Key West late summer of 1963 and dad went to Korea. We stayed with mom's family in GA. After a year or so, we returned back to Ft Bliss and from 1969-72, we were stationed in Kitzingen Germany, I think his unit was B Btry, 6 BN 52d FA. After I graduated in 72, back to Ft Bliss where I joined the Air Force. Dad did one more tour to Korea in 1975 or so and he retired at Bliss about 1977 or so. Dad passed away in 2008, and I wish I could have seen this page long before that, because I know he would have gotten a thrill from it.

I was stationed in Key West in 1970 on the Howard W gilmore, sub tender, and I also hated to see it change. It was fun times back then.

I was stationed at "B" Battery Key West, 1967-1968. I sad to see it fell into disrepair. The Cuban Missile Crisis was a real event and we served an important role and, I speak for myself, I took it seriously. On hind site what a great experience, very fond memories.
