Just learned of this site from Leon Slusher (Hahn). Enjoyed reading the Guest Book e-mail. Hopefully some old buddies will see mine. Along with Leon, I have contacted Ron Davis (operations) and Ron Brown (MM1 maintenance). Looking for Frank Martinez, Norman Dwyer, Carl Messer, Bob McMann (sp), Joe Ellis. Remember Dubois? Hello to Steve Glazer and 'Butch' Vink (sounds like he's in ADAM). I'm thinking about Orlando in October.
Hi, Nice to see so many names that I can't put a face to after all these years. I remember you guys. I was a mech 1 on the 'A' bird stationed at Sembach 1963-1965. Some names I remember from our crew were SSgt Stephenson, TSgt Hal Kearns, my mech 2 was Fadness mechs 3 and 4 were Reed and Jan Narushof. We had an assortment of armament guys on our crew. I spent the last 6 months there with SMSgt Culpepper directing site maintenance. Did a stint at Malmstrom saw Max Sanches, Blatterman and Lt. Knapp while there. Would like to locate Jan Narushof as we did a lot of fun stuff like ride dirt bikes over there. Loved my time spent at Grunstadt. They used to let us cook our own chow in the morning. Bob
Joe looks good, will have to see about reservations soon. From the hugh numbers that have visted this page, it does look very popular. Walt
HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOU AT THE REUNION IN ORLANDO LYMAN
i wasa in 882 mms guidance. I see my ncoic laviolette has passed. Peterson,Euing,Gados,Belowski,Johnson,john are some names I remember.
This is a very interesting site. I saw a few familiar faces in the Wanted file. I was at Sembach in Missile Maintence from July 1963 to Oct. 1966. Covered all sites, but was at Site 1 as Expediter last. Would like to hear from anyone that remembers my wife, Lois or me. Also, we were in the Square Dance Club. We had many good times traveling the area dancing at other bases.
Keep up the fantastic webpage. We will see you in Orlando in October 2001. Bill
I was in the 586th MMS for the duration of my tour in Germany and worked on Site V most of the time. We worked with the PowerPacks, NTCU's,Hydraulic Control Units and 100kw Generators on a regular basis. I had many friends there; some names that come to mind are: FRED PAINE, WALTER L. PERDUE,DENNIS KAMMERMAN, BOB HOSINER,ERNIE O'TOOLE,JOHN LUCAS,BOB VALENTI and ANDREW MURRAY.It would be nice to hear from any of these guys! I had a nickname of ' Duke' at that time. Contact me at email@example.com
I've already signed on, but was wondering if anyone knows anything about Frank Kirkland, Jim Manning, Neil Jindra or Wes Curry? Shane Combs, Guidance Tech Mace
I was with the 498th Missile Group from 1961 to 1964. I worked in Maintenance Analysis.
Great web site. Am trying to find the guys who launched bird # 40058 on March 18, 1960 from Cape Canaevral. Also Launch Crew #1 members from the 310th TMS May 1960 - June 1961.
Just found this site. I will get back to you latter. Bob
Joe the site looks much better. Wanted to register for Orlando on site but did not see that option. Walt
Signed in earlier but I would like to find Jim Skelton; Jim Ramsey; Ray Beverly; Dick Cain; Bill Miller; Paul Parkershon and others that I will think of as soon as I click submit on this. If any one knows there whereabouts or remembers me please holler. Still Planning on Orlando. Dick Moffett
Looking for old friends. Anyone seen Charlie Story or Walt Gronkowski? I located Lt Dick Guest and Col Zaden Lee and they will join this group. I live in Denver but winter in Florida. See everyone at the next reunion. beetle
Worked on MM1 Teracruzer maintenance at a site(can't remember name)just off the Koblenz rd. Site also had a chow hall there. Just up the road from Site 4 (I think). Some names I worked with, Steele, Parsons, Prior, Thomas, Whitehead, Olsen.
I started in Assy. at Bitburg Than to Launch crew,on Sgt Beason's crew I was a Missile Maint Tech.I put in a Segustion,on the MISSILE Launcher while in Bitburg and got A Award.I Worked on the Titan I Missile 1960 through 1965 at Ellsworth AFB SO. DAkota.Than on Titan II at Vandenberg AFB CALIF. .From 1965 to 1969, Than I was retrained in ACFT. and spent some time in Vietnam .I retired in 1976 from the AF .Now I just retired from Qualex,A Kodak Photo Lab,as A Proto Lead Technition.
Went from Elmendorf to Lowry in 8/66 and actually did set training OJT at Bitburg. Worked site 7-2 with Capt. George Hudson, most of the time, as Crew Chief. We probably shut the last bird down in Germany. The order was to shut down at 0:00 and we held our #3 bird on status until 0:06. Left Bitburg for the big birds at Little Rock and retired 12-75 out of the Minuteman program at FE Warren. Found the site by accident. Love it. Sad to see so few of the 71st'ers on it. That was a GREAT outfit. I have been back to Hahn and Bitburg several times and it is enough to make a grown man cry. Both bases are in shambles and the Bitburg sites have trees growing in front of the launch doors. The old 71st building is a hotel and the club across the street is a beer joint.
Thank you for this wonderful site that allows forgotten memories to be restored. Most of my career with these missiles were in Quality Control and I met some lifelong friends. Hello to all my co- workings of the past and hope that we will be able to see each other in Orlando in the coming year.
