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.
