David Parker's note (below) reminds me of when I was a teletype operator at the 719th AC&W, at Sparrevohn, AK in 1955. The old machine was putting out christmas trees, santa claus's, and other stuff. Don't remember how they originated. The radio TTY signal was usually around 3X3 so our teletype messages (and the christmas trees and santa claus's) were usually somewhat garbled. The best thing I remember about Christmas and New Year's at Sparrevohn was that I was a "short-timer" and would be leaving in a couple of weeks. Here's wishing all my comrades of the mid 50's a Happy New Year. If you were at Sparrevohn in 1955, let me hear from you.

Looking for guys that were at Othello (637th Radar Sq) during the period 1961 - 1965. I was an AlC working in the Orderly Room. I bowled and played softball. Remember guys like Tom Minger, Kenneth Roper, Tommy Hudson, Lt Ducar, Lt. Hilton, Melvin Askew. Love to hear from anyone and maybe get a reunion going.

Glad to have found this link. I was at Cape Newenham in 57-58. Of course I had been stationed at Tyndall before someone found out where I was. Being I dislike cold weather going there in November was 'chilly'. Bless everyone who served then and now, may the Lord Bless and keep everyone safe.

The FAA has installed cameras throughout Alaska, mainly at airports. They just announced they will be adding more cameras in the next few years, again mainly airport but they will be installing them at Tin City and Murphy Dome. There is already one at Mcgrath aimed at Tatalina AFS and at the airpot at Unilakleet. Search FAA Alaska weather cams.

I should have mentioned the FAA camera at Fort Yukon. One camera is aimed at the radar sight.

There have been numerous previous messages concerning hearing aids availability for Military Retirees. I just came back from Sheppard AFB yesterday and I am getting a set of Destiny 2 1600’s for $600 which is the “at cost price” for the VA and Military. These same aids cost over $2600 each at a Civilian Hearing Aid Store. Thought you all might want to check this out. There are also reduced cost programs available through the state for low income people. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it I make too much money for these programs. You can also check to see If you have a University with an Audiology Clinic such as OU Medical Center which also offers reduced cost aids but not as low as the military program. I am providing the web site address which lists all of the facilities that participate. I hope this info helps those that need it. I would have severe problems in my daily life if it were not for hearing aids. http://www.militaryaudiology.org/rachap/state.html
