I was the Nuc Weapons Spec on the Mace B from 67 to closing in 69, serving in the 71st TMS. My launch officer was Capt Wayne Clements and was stationed at Idenheim. I enjoyed the tour but wish I had taken more pictures of the area and the sites. Bitburg was a great city and it was enjoyable just walking the streets. And, the beer was great. I enjoyed my tour over there and have fond memories of Bitburg. If anyone has a missile badge or a badge of the 71st TMS, I would love to have one as I have misplaced mine.

I spent 2 exciting years at Bitburg with the 36th AMS. Although, I must say I did not enjoy the winters there as I was on the Mid-Night express as they say, I relished the excitement of working on the APQ systems of the F4-Ds and Es. I miss the country side, and the ease of ones ability to ride a bike anywhere there. I served from 1972-1974 and went on to Seymore Johnson AFB in North Carolina. I have been a Field Engineer for NCR now 30 years. I am having a flag sewn with the 36th AMS logo, and will display it proudly here in Hickory North Carolina. Ya gotta love that thunderous F4 don't ya!!! A side note -- My son is a Marine now--pray for him--

What we know is that he is puertorican, his first name is Troy and he was shot down over Vietnam. It would be really great if anyone knew his last name or could help us in some other way.

Was at Bitburg's NDI lab from '88-'90. What a great tinme! Great base and a perfect location. Amestradam, Luxemburg, GK, the club scene was one of the best in the world. Does anyone remember Metropolis, or Escape? Had great friends there and would love to find them again.

Looking for anyone who may have been stationed there with the Security Police Squadron. Also, if anyone has any idea if reunions are ever held there.

I am now out of the service, but my brother is still in and just go orders to England, so you know where I am headed as soon as I can..... back down memory lane, to share with my family. If anyone out there remembers me, jot me an e-mail. I would love to get in touch. Betsy
