What a great site! I came here completely by accident while looking for information on the DEW Line. I`ve got you bookmarked now. Thank you for a fantastic resource on a little bit of Cold War era history

RE: my previous message of 9/19/02 regarding the Military Classmates website. Military Classmates doesn`t have a URL; It can be accessed at as it`s one of the options on their website. Sorry I didn`t clarify it in the original message.

ATTENTION SITE ROSTER MEMBERS!!! Many of you are aware of the `Military Classmates` webpage, as lots of your names on `our` Site Rosters are also on `their` AC&W squadron listings. Understandably, most of the AC&W squadrons on `Military Classmates` have many more names showing than we have on the `Site Rosters` of our Museum, obviously due to their larger coverage. I`m recommending that you take a look at the `Military Classmates` AC&W Squadrons and contact those you know who haven`t signed up on the Site Rosters of the Radar Museum. I`ll venture that a good percentage of those folks don`t have any idea that Radomes, Inc or the Radar Museum exist, and that they will be enthusiastic to learn we`re out there.

To all you old troops from Cambria AFS, CA in the early 60`s- If any of you remember SSgt Basil Cuizon (Motor pool) He passed away this month and was buried with full military honors. The Air Force personnel from Vandenberg AFB came to Cambria and gave him a 21 gun salute. It was an impressive ceremony to see, Basil was a Philippine Scout, Bataan Death March Survivor and POW 1942-1944. I`m married to his daughter Annie and if any old friends of the family are out there and see this- drop us a line. I`m retired AF and never thought much of a burial with an honor guard but after seeing one I`m sure my survivors will want one when I`m gone. It might be one of the few benefits-worth anything-we have left.

I was looking at the info on this site of TIN CITY, AK and under `documents` there was an item called: Certificate of Rotation submitted by Bob Moore. I couldn`t bring the document up and I think it was the one that was humourous about how to expect craziness when this guy would rotate stateside. Anyone got a copy of this? Bob, are you still out there? Your email addy returned to me as closed. Thanks!

I was a member of the 776 Radar Squadron in Point Arena AFS, CA from 1974-76. I worked at the GATR site (Ground to Air Transmit and Receive) as a Ground Radio Repairman. This site brings back memories. I still have a scrapbook of some things from Pt. Arena.

After several years of site preparation, we are finally ready to invite the public onto the former Camp Hero / Montauk AFS, now part of Montauk Point State Park on eastern Long Island, NY. On September 18, 2002, Commissioner Bernadette Castro will officially open this area of the park at a ceremony and press conference scheduled for 1:00 PM (EDT) at the park. It would be our pleasure to have AC&W radar veterans -- and especially members of RADOMES, Inc. -- join us at this most memorable event. Please RSVP to this e-mail if any of you decide to personally attend. Please feel free to pass on this invitation to any interested person or member of your organization. If you need to speak to me, I welcome your calls at 518-474-7336. Sincerely, -- Dominic Jacangelo, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, & Historic Preservation

I worked for IBM Federal Systems Div. from 1959 to 1963. Except for my initial training at Kingston NY, the rest of the time was spent at the SAGE site at Norton AFB, San Bernardino CA. (I helped put it into commission--to use Navy terms, which was my military background.) It was an exciting time to be in the computer industry, where remained for the next 39 years. I retired in September 2001. It`s still fun to talk to young people who only know Intel and Microsoft and describe what a SAGE computer looked like. Bob Stannard Phoenix AZ

IMPORTANT NOTICE - I apologize for using this forum to contact you regarding problems we`re experiencing with our web site. I have no current access to this site for updates or email, so I`m unable to use other methods. I don`t know when this will be straightened out. Moving to a new host is an option, which will be taken at some point, but it will be a while because of the complexity of the site, and of support issues. Just wanted to keep you all informed as best I can. - Gene
