I was a dependent at Sembach. I attended 7th grade at Vogelveh, 8th at Sembach, and started h.s. at K-town. My dad was the Comm. officer, Maj. Raymond Miles. I played football and basketball with the "Tigers", and generally had the time of my life living in Germany when a kid could buy a bottle of Jaegermeister for a quarter (or a Deutschmark).

I am trying to locate any one who remembers my dad, Hal Porter. I have a "mug" that he brought back from Sembach Air Base, Germany. It has the "11th Tactical Missile Squadron" imprinted on the side. I'm pretty sure he was there in the 1950's. I'm curious to know what he did as a member of this Squadron. He passed away in 1970 at the very early age of 47. Any information would be helpful, as I am trying to get a scrapbook together for my children about their grandfather whom they never met.

Thank you,
