  1. I was in the 801st CDS at Lockbourne from Apr of 1963 to Apr of 1965…I spent almost the entire 2 years at Brize Norton and then Upper Heyford..As a guard looking at the pictures it brings back such memories..I retired in 1987 as Superintendent of Comm Operations at Eilson AFB…Tks for the memories!!

  2. I had the privilege of being assigned to the maintenance sq. in 1951 thru 1954 at MacDill AFB, Fla. Enjoyed my air force career, what a beautiful aircraft.

  3. I am a civilian, born in 1961. Seeing pics like these make me proud to be an American, and remind me how fortunate I am to be from the USA. Thanks to all the men and women who dedicated parts of their lives to being stationed at bases around the world for the sole purpose of keeping us and the free world safe and living free! May God bless you all!
