Checkin' in. Hope you are all well. Memories of PAS don't haunt me....I would hope that I haunt THEM! For a first tour, I always told everyone - where the hell could you go from Peshawar that was worse? Shemya was onlly 12 months, as were most of the Turkey sites1

Perhaps the luckiest ever to serve here. Met Dorothy Brown valentines party at the nurses quarters 1962, a school teacher just arrived from Turkey. Families were just arriving and we needed 2 more teachers in addition to the 2 who started the school year there. Got engaged end of May and married in Texas Dec 1962. Also I escorted a horse which Jackie Kennedy recieved as a gift of Pres of Pakaistan to Andrews AFB Wash DC. A long trip on C130 then return via Germany. A long story. Finished with USAF at Tinker AFB Oklahoma. Ended up practicing vet med in Wheaton, IL until retired in 2017 still married to Dotothy.

Hello. I'm Gary Bartlett's daughter, Myra. He talked periodically about his short tour here. I only kn the last few years knew the name of his group. While he didn't speak of this time much, when he did there was a nostalgia that only other AFSS people would understand.

if anyone served with him and had a story or two I'd love to hear from you.!

Hi: I was having problems getting into the guestbook, but, I guess it's working. I recently gave a couple of "talks" about my time in Pakistan and the changes that have occurred since then. When I (we) were there, Peshawar had a population of about 180k and now it is on the order of two million!! Back during the Russo/Afghan war, the base was used as a POW camp for captured Russian and Afghan soldiers. There have been several movies and even a TV series about the POW camp---google "Badaber uprising - wikipedia." More recently, there was a "taliban" attack on the base with a number of attackers killed in the area around the old chapel--go to Wikipedia and look for "2015 Camp Badaber attack." When I presented the talk, someone pointed out that there is a book called "I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up For Education and Was Shot." The girl who wrote the book is/was from Swat and talks about her childhood and when the Taliban came into Swat. All in all, it was an interesting exercise and brought back a bunch of memories. I look forward to hearing from any PAS "alumni."

I was one of the last Airmen stationed at PAS. Thank you for developing this website and providing a YouTube video. It brought a lot of memories.

Hello SOB,s. I'm trying to locate anyone, everyone that can hit the keys to contact me in relationship to my having served at PAS from 1961 -1962. I'm SOL when it concerns military records due to the fire on July 12,1973, my records were burned as was a few or many others.

Write if you will be so kind.
