Good memories from long ago. Remember Stan Allen, Kermit Rowe, Jim Taylor, Donny Price, "Bonecrusher", and a lot of others! Great football games and the embassy dependents from Kabul. Now, a retired Environmental Engineer.

Hi, my name is Matt and my father John Clarke was stationed at Peshawar in the late 1960’s. He mentioned that there are Comm Group 6937 hats available. I would like to get him one as a gift and I hope someone can help me acquire one. Please respond to this address or you may call me at 406-212-0053. Thanks for any help. I know he would really enjoy a hat.

Haven't been here for a while. Had some health issues last year and spent quite a while in hosp., but I am doing better now.

I was friends with Gary Rutledge(who is web master of this site). We served together in Alaska at 6981st, then both were 2T'd to 6937th PAS. He went 6 months before me, but we hooked up there and became good buddies. I also remember Harold Carmichael, also from the 81st.

I do remember one excursion up to the SWAT mountains where our bus was met by tribesmen, and then forcibly asked to leave. We obliged and didn't waste any time doing it. LOL I was only there for a few months, but long enough to realize that I didn't really want to be there. I went from 45 below zero temps to 115 in the shade. Quite a drastic difference and not easy to adjust to.

Spent a lot of time at the pool drinking lots of beer, played a little softball, occasional bowling, occasional movie, and lots of dits and dahs.

Was supposed to get my E-5 stripe in May due to being picked for 2T, but left early for medical evac and never did receive it. Bummer because I do get a disability pension now and the extra jack would have come in handy. LOL

I am not on Facebook but I have seen the picture of our "Departed Brothers" that has been posted to the 6937th page. I know of two Brothers that should be added:

Robert L. "Bob" Daisey Passed 8/25/13 in N. Wildwood NJ Tour Dates 66-67

Bart Croissette Passed 6/15/10 in Moorestown NJ Tour Dates 66-67

Maybe there is a Facebook member who checks this web site who can get this to Ted Altizer who I believe maintains the list of those who have left us.

Reported to Charlie Flight TE section. Came as a two striper, left as a two striper and in between I became the TE reporter, trained two 2T SSGTs as my replacement, served as a Securty type on detached duty at the US Embassy being built at Islamabad. Did a CONUS imbalance tour at James Connally AFB (USAF trained Undergrate Navigators there), but it was at Waco, TX, Baylor University, where I went to night school. Then had to boogie as I gave flowers to all the secretaries and one was shacking with the Msgt what was in charge, so I put in for special assignment and got Crypto Maint training instead of back to Mother 69xx. Japan and far east was great, even a quick trip to Viet Nam. then got out and became a contractor for guess who. Spent time in England and Japan helping Mother 69xx except at the next higher level (civilian). Worked a lot of time at Mother's place and did some three letter support around the DC area. Have finally really retired, but remember Analyst don't really know anything, they are just guessing.

Enjoyed the ride - trying to run down some 202's that were there. And a 292 and 292x2 Bandit if they are around. Now at 75 years and still kicking.

I regret to inform any of the friends, or coworkers of my farthers passing this year. He and mom, Doris

Anderson, lived a great life together. Mom is now living in assisted living in Colorado. Dad passed on March 15 this year, at the Sheridan assisted living facility in Sarasota FL.

As a dependent, I was fortunate to live in the government house prdovided, the water tower was in our back yard. The NCO club was a hoot, even when some of the guys would move dads' car to a different location! Since us dependents were not doing so well in the monitored schooling, we were provided transport to the American High School in Turkey.

I enjoyed the entire experience, and even to this day... mom is still in contact with Quadeem Quazi, he was the lead contractor who increased the height of the wall that PAS within. .

Mostly I enjoyed the flights on the Starlifter when traveling to and from Pakistan. So much, that after I entered the USAF in 1970, my goal was to become a Flight Engineer on that aircraft. I fulfilled my wish in 1979, and served for 20 years.

Following my dads foot steps by joining the military was a great experience, I became a commercial pilot when I retired, and flew passenger and cargo aircraft. My last work was with a contract company that provided ISR platforms for the US Army. I did numerous tours in Afghanistan, mainly looking for IEDs, and reporting them to the military units outside the wire.

I also used to deliver the Mystic Lamp paper to the military housing, Salam Razaq might remember me. If any one remembers the stuck Santa on the roof or our house, it sure provided a different meaning to the theme song, We gotta get outa this place!

Trips to the Kyhber pass, visiting local villages with Quadeem, Bowling, Swimming, Movies, and a great bunch of people, a wonderful expenience that I would certainly do again.

Thank you for keeping the memories alive. Dad would certainly have enjoyed knowing the spirit lives on.
