Was a Mech #2 on Capt Harms crew with SSgt Provoncher and Bob Arnold. So many memories .. Seeing the many photos of the block houses, the shelters, (and without the shelters!) and trying to stay awake on the night shifts .. Send me a line if you recall me.

I had a convention conflict this year and missed the reunion. Will try hard to make Orlando.

I enjoyed the firs reunion in Las Vegas and am looking forward to the next one in Orlando,Fla. I was one of the guys who built the training site at 'A'flt Sembach and was on the training crews with Capt Neilson,Sgt Painter,and Airman Bond,as well as with the later upgrade of the site with Maj.Robison,Sgt Lischka,A1c Baird,and our Civ.advisor Jack Conniff. We trained the crews and had a great time meeting a lot of great guys in the three years I was stationed at Sembach air patch. I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of the guys at the next get together. thanks to Joe Perkins and the rest for the great web site that we can visit. See ya in Oct 2001 Johnny

I received great e-mails from Meine Komeraden von Flugplatz Hahn (somebody want to correct my German?): 'Marty' Martin, 'Zito' Esposito, Dave Maas and Steve Glazer. Joe, this is a great site. I love it but I'm changing from Juno (it stinks) to AOL, so I now have a new address. I hope to hear from other old buddies. I found some great old pictures, but I was using slide film back then, so I've gotta figure something out. Some other names I thought of: Joe Rea, Lou Yacco and Fred Mergle.

887th in Gruenstadt the whole time. Excellent assignment. Crewed with S A Moore, Bob Hagemes, Capt. Wakeman, among others. Good times with Ski, Bob Bolton, Jerry McBride, der Deeker, Robbie and George to name a few. Great friends. Welcome all correspondence! Hope to see you in Orlando.

Worked on the 'A' Bird guidance system. Took over as crew chief from Ken Collingwood - remember him, great guy. Also remember SMS Fournier and Tsgt Bill Thomas? My only problem is I can't remember the site number - I think it was 5. While looking through the e-mail notes I saw some great old names - Lyscik, Martin, Esposito, Maas, Wiese, Dahl, Ruiz, Glazer and Renninger (I thought I was the left fielder on that softball team). Anyone heard from Bayliss, Quatrochi, Putnam, Doi or Heymans? Remember Lautzenhausen and all those bars?

Congratulations on having a great website. Since I missed the first two events, I am looking forward to the 2001 reunion in Orlando.

Thanks guys you really made my day. I have a lot of great memories of Germany, Bitburg & Sembach, the Air Force and the guys I was stationed with. I've been looking for a site like this for sometime. Today I received the Missileer News and decided to check the site out.

Really great to see everyone in Grapevine, We need to get more 586th people there next year. Marty Dave and Chico all looked great. Someone please help me get a hold of Joe Ellis, he lives in Paliuyup (S) Washington. No Phone # or e-mail address that works. I was the left fielder for the award winning 586th softball team. and occasionally worked at site 6. Most off duty hours were spent in the 'Cave' in kirchburg. Raced micro midgets (#76)

I went through Guidance School at Lowry late '59 and early '60 then on to the 310th TMS at Osan. Anyone remember the 1960 shots from the old Northwest Air Base on Guam?

How about that, this is great. Found you in the reunion section of today's (8-13-00) Newsday edition (Long Island, NY) placed by Julian Esposito. I was assigned to 589th C&G Sq. and 4504th MTW. Unfortunately I can't make it to Dallas due to other commitments. However, keep me posted for next year in Orlando. Sincerely, Norbert Koenig

I was sent to Sembach in 1957. Relocated to Hahn after only 3/4 Months at Sembach. Was in Africa for 1958 shots. Anybody remember the bird that would not come down??? Was also TDY to Bitburg. Spent most of the time at Hahn with 586 C. & G. Sq. Det. #2 (Idarkoph). Was also north of Hahn back in the woods. After Det. #2 closed was sent back to Hahn and assigned to 586th Group and worked offbase in the underground building next to offbase NCO club. Really enjoyed all of my time in Germany. Any other Crypto Operators out there ?? Donald Rhodd
