I have purchased a ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE FLIGHT JACKET that once belonged to a Canadian Colonel Platz. In the late 70`s, he served in the United States with the 24th Air Division at Malmstrom AFB, as an instructor while on an exchange program. Owning and wearing his jacket would mean a lot more to me if I knew some of its history. Can you help? Bud Fellers Greenville, SC

I really enjoy this site, and I visit it often. It always evokes memories of the `good old days` in the Air Force, and of all the memories and good friends that I made. Over the years, I had the good fortune to be reunited with many friends as we were often stationed at more than one installation (AFS) together. In some ways, those were `the best years` of my life and I truly miss them, and the people with whom I served. Charlie Baker (Ssgt, AFSC 30372, AC&W Radar Technician 1971 - 1982)

Great site, guys. Will be helpful to those of us currently `in the system` who are trying to sort through what was/is historically significant and then manage it appropriately. Let me know if I can assist in some way in the future. By the way, I have a limited number of hard copies of the `Searching the Skies` report and our other Cold War studies if your folks are interested.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Wishing all a healthy and happy New Year. Prosperous wouldn`t be bad either. Would enjoy hearing from any who served in the 645th Radar SQ. Patrick AFB. I served 62-65. Those were wonderful days of our youth. And what a `plum` assignment for a Radar Sq. member, the sunny beaches of Fla. Wow!! And uncrowded beaches before the population exploded and before the building of condo`s that blotted out the sun, well at least blotted out the view of the ocean and the beaches.

Happy New Year to all you old `Cold War` warriors and especially to Gene and staff of the Online Air Defense Radar Museum! Thank you all gentlemen!
