After 50 years to the month, ran into a fellow PAS veteran at jury duty selection. it was great to see you this past summer Walt P. We both worked in supply warehouse, he in the front office and myself in the back. If I ever find my pictures of PAS I will give you a shout. A couple of years ago did locate another veteran of PAS out in Okla. It was good talking to you Jim McS. Also in one of the alumni photos reconized Sgt. Dapson who was also in supply. I enjoyed my time there. Kyber Pass,Lahore,Rawlapindi and other local areas. Played softball,volley ball,bowling and some basketball. Also enjoyed horseback riding on the canal. We met some real characters sometimes,some had weapons or ran their buffalos at us, or tried taking my friends,Bill R wedding band. We are all getting older but I hope all are well.

Peshawar was my first assignment in AFRTS. As a young broadcaster, it was a marvelous opportunity to practice on a small and captive audience that had few options! We were the primary source of US and world news, and we were totally dependent on Tech Control and Teletype Maintenance to keep our circuits up and printing. At Christmas, I would play Santa Claus on TV at 5:00pm and come back as the newscaster at 6:00pm. Not sure if the kids ever caught on. When I left in August 1969, I didn't turn off the lights, but TV had gone dark and we were down to radio only. It was an unforgettable experience and we are among very few Americans who ever got to ride through the Khyber Pass in a Ford stationwagon rented from the NCO club. It was great to spend the last hourng several hundred messages from PAS Alumni. Thanks to all.

I was in Peshawar when the movie theater was opened.I remember the swimming pool and softball.The food was good in the mess hall.I also remember powdered milk and powdered eggs. I went on 1 day trip through Kyber Pass. Took a 3 day trip to Lahore . Both were good and interesting.The flight to Pakistan we spent overnight in Tripoli,Libya. On the way back we spent 24 hours in Madrid.The barracks were in good shape but never had hot water showers,just barely warm.The earthquake in middle of night was scary.My locker fell over.

Reunion in Omaha was my first and really nice to meet other Peshawar alumni. The trip to Offutt AFB abd the SAC museum were really nice. The Commander from the 55th at Offutt did a super job and the final dinner. I had never been to reunion before and really enjoyed meeting so many other and hearing about their time in Pakistan. Thanks to Tom Davis and his organizers for the good weekend.


iloxi in about 18mos sounds great and I'll try to attend.

Just got back and rested enough from the 2017 reunion in Omaha. Anyone who didn't go missed one of the best reunions we have had so far.

There were plenty of stories being told, and they might have been about you - but you weren't there to defend yourself.

Tom Davis deserves a HUGE round of kudos. He and his team did a wonderful job.

2019 - Biloxi (more than likely) here we come. You better get ready for the "Sons Of Badabeer"!

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.
