Name: Dennis Law
I enlisted in Jan 1975 and discharged in Jan 79. I was an Aircraft Control and Warning Radar Repairman during that time. I went to Keesler AFB Mississippi for Tech School. First duty station was at Homestead AFB FL. from Jan 76 to Feb 77 then I was transferred to Hofn Naval Station in Iceland. Contrary to the title Naval Station there were only 3 Naval personnel there at any one time and they rotated out of there about every 3 months. There were however about 200 to 250 Air Force personnel there for a 12 month tour. There was one Icelandic worker and his name was Valcik he was the site fireman and he had been there for many many years. There was also one Security Policeman and he was assigned Security Augmantees of which I was one (extra duties for many of the maintenance, operations and powerplant workers. From there I was transferred to Klamath Falls OR. The name of the Installation was Kingsley Field although Kingsley Field was only where our housing was. The actually Radar Site as up on Keno Hill there was only 1 shift operating on the hill 5 days a week although 1 qualified tech was assigned standby for about a week at a time. The site was in the process of being transferred over to the FAA when I first arrived there in Mar of 78.
