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.

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
