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

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.

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.
