Assignment to PAS got me started and I ended up working in 10 countries; visited 20 others. Interesting stuff. Hello to Stan Bohinc, Larry DeBasio.

Gosh was that fun. (NO). Trips to the Khyber, Gilgit. old town, outdoor haircuts, NCO club. Really primative place, but interesting. I was there when they were just building the station. Cobras and scorpions everywhere. Tonga cart rides into the old town, golf at the Pakistani Officers club. Ah yes, I remember it well.

Hello Cynthia Turner: After reading your post I guess our paths crossed at some time on PAS and we could have pasted by each orther recently.. I worked in the operations vans and spent my off duty time either at the base bowling center or library. It is nice to hear that you have good memories of that time of your life. I can also confirm that you have picked a great place to live at this time of your life. Love the mountains. Charlie Schriver

Hello! I am the dependent daughter of Robert Turner (deceased) who was a firefighter at PAS; I believe the years were mid 1966 to 1969. Dad brought us over (mom Marylin, also deceased, and brother Robert) and put us in a beautiful house in University Town. I have tons of memories of our time there; riding the bus to the base with Mom and my brotherstarting first grade on the base with my teacher Ms. Nishihara, our trip to Thieves City, our chuckadore and our landlord and his family coming to visit; the peddlers and snake charmers, my dad driving the school bus, ladies in burkas surrounding my blond-headed little brother (and my parents getting very nervous.) Sand storms, the mountains, scorpions in the house and cobras in the back yard...I could go on and on. Will be back to post more, but I did request to join the Facebook site.

Thanks for this site, I have loved looking over everything.

Cindy

Stationed at McGuire AFB ---Minding my own business, l get orders to. Go to Mount Holly, N.J. To get a visa for some God-foresaken place called Peshawar. Musta been a terrible oversight -- l put in for England!!!

Anyone remember the silver "missle" with I H T F P? That did not mean I Have. Truly Found Paradise.

Anyhow I survived and bragged about my bus trips to Greene's Hotel and throwing Hersey kisses out the door at the urchins. It was the only way to get off . Baksheesh. Sahib.


Salaam, shalom,Salem, peace.

My arrival at PAS my first overseas tour with USAF Security Service. I enjoyed my duty, my room mates, and the trips down town, for the first few months the favorite gathering place was the Airman's club patio. Then I discovere The Anglican church in the Cantonment of Peshawar There I met John Abdul Majid, and his son Johnathon. Little did I know that on May 11, 1967, that they would becom my father and brother-in-law. This year we celebrate our 50th year as Peter and Judy Smith.

My Dad ran the laundry, and I went to elementry school. His nick name was Super Suds...hahaha

When the six day war started on May 23rd 1967 ? I was living in Peshawar Pakistan, Jamrud Road in University Town. The Local citizens in Peshawar rioted and destroyed everything American they could get their hands on. They even Stoned the early morning government busses that ran from University Town to the Base, after 0800 there were no more busess that day, and for a week we hunkered down and disapper.....The hardest thing about that day for me was when my parents took us home to University Town. I DIDNOT WANT to LEAVE the BASE.
