My name Is Richard (Dick) Rake. I was at Hahn from July 1962 - July 1965. I was on a launch crew with Major Glenn Dorset and later with Captain Lee. Other names I remember are Tom Redding and Sgt Vess. Another name that comes to mind is Kosloski or something like that. I can\'t remember for sure but I think I worked at site 4. I did a lot of model airplane building and learned how to drink beer while I was there. I just found this site so I\'[[ keep looking to see if any names pop up that I remember.

My father was with the 69Th Tactical Missile Squadron out of Patrick. He did go down to Wheelus to launch missiles. ( I saw someone commented i a history of missile launches at Wheelus, that two lieutenants were not speaking and a missile caught fire. Wonder who they were? Anyhow, the AF sent DAd to the University of Michigan to get two Master\'s degrees, after his assignment at Hahn. And later he was military liaison to Martin Marietta among other things he did. Do you have a lot more photos of the missile launchings? I have all DAd\'s slides and will look to see if there are any. DAD was Edward Paul Clark, USNA, class of 51, retired Col, USAF.

I served at Site V, Hahn from October 1961 until September 1963. At approx. 21 1/2 years of age and an E-4, I became a a crew chief (maintenance crew) in a very unusual way. Sgt. Strayer (warhead) was the NCO of record and had the responsibility while I was given the authority to run the crew. I wouldn\'t do an early re-up as they wanted me to; with the promise of a promotion. I didn\'t fall for that old trick. So they gave me the job anyway. It actually ran smoothly and we got the job done. In fact, I had already received permission to get an early out, for college, when I was handed the crew chief job.

I was in Bitburg from Sept. 1964 to Dec. 1966. We were in electronic working on the guidance system. Lt. Dion Turner was CO. Sgts. Lindbaugh, Robt. E. Lee are some I remember. Left the USAF and got a degree in accounting. Worked for CPA firm but that didn\'t take. Sold steel for 17 years and then became a burger flipper, which is what I was probably cut out for to begin with. Became a McDonald\'s Owner/Operator in 1989 in Minnesota. Ended up with 5 stores in southern MN. and sold them and retired in Feb. 2012. Wife Mary and I have 6 kids and 6 grandkids.

I am looking for Paul Decoste, Wife Dina, who went with me from Orlando AFB Mace Missles to Hahn in 1963 and then got a hardship transfer to Aviano, Italy sometime prior to 1966. He was one of the good guys and his wife could sure cook. He may have stayed in Italy when he retired. About 1976? Any one remember or know him.Dick Moffett

Hahn 63/66 Just been looking thru the Hahn AB FB Page. Missileers are sadly missing. It is all about the fighter wing now.
Guess I was getting nostalgic when I heard that Jim Skeltion from the mace crews had died. He was good people.
Guess we are getting old.
