For all you that were at the 762nd North Truro, be advised, the soda fountain at Adams Pharmacy has been taken down. Anyone stationed there remembers this was the only place in town where you could get a 10 cent cup of coffee and check out the happenings. Guess the only thing left is the Pilgrim Monument.

I found your picture of Texas Tower II (Model) by a TSgt R Aschert said to be at AFMuseum. We think we have it at Peterson AFB Museum. Our records indicate model made by TSgt R. Asbert (Living in Colorado Springs) and donated to us in 1996. We also have a Book of TT2 with pictures, newpaper items and a TT2 Newletter which we believe came from him also. We would like to find out if this is the same person and model. We tried to find him in the locate phone book...no luck. Any ideas? We will also contact the TT Association. Thanks (see www.petemuseum.org and click on `inside Exhibits`)

This note is a response to Ed Weaver`s note below. It`s a good question. However, I looked at the two photos side by side, and clearly they are two entirely different models. Notice the radomes, for one thing. The model at the U.S. Air Force Museum has red-and-white checkerboard opaque radomes, while the model at the Peterson AFB museum has transparent radomes (allowing the radar antennas inside each dome to be viewed). The former also has a model helicopter on its deck, whereas the latter does not. The cranes of each are in different positions, too. See our ``Texas Towers`` page for two photos of the model in question at the U.S. Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton, Ohio. -- Tom

HI AGAIN, ITS BEEN 35 + YEARS SINCE I`VE HEARD FROM YOU. WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO. SERVED AT BAUDETTE AFS 1965-66 AT CHARLESTON AFS 1967-68
Name: Jack Arensberg
Served at 907th. and 762nd. RADRONs, 1962 to 1966 as 30352. Now live in Midland, Michigan and have been trying for several months to locate the Gap Filler that was here. No luck so far. Have talked to the newspaper and the Historical Society as well as several long time residents. But no luck so far. I know that it was an AN/FPS-14 and that it was closed down in 1965. Is there anyone who can give me a lead as to just where it was located?

Itwas great to get a long e-mail from Capt. Ron Waggoner ref. the 810th Radar Sqdn, Winston-Salem, NC a couple of weeks ago, thanks for your reply. On a sad note last Mar.29, 2001 was notified CWO-4 R.S. East, the Adm. Officer passed away in his early 80ts at Chatham, Va. Mr. East was a great gentleman and officer. Am trying to get a updated e-mail address for Sgt. William K.Jones, Bill your e-mail address on the sqdn. roster is obsolete and would like to get a new posted one so I can contact you. Would like to hear from many more of the guys stationed at the 810th.
