My hometown is Peshawar I was student of Islamia college Peshawar in 1960-63. Before the Swimming Pool was constructed families from Badaber came on weekends to swim in Peshawar Club. It was here that I met Col Julius Spooner and family. My late father was Maj Gen serving in East Pakistan now Bangladesh in 1960-61. I was invited for lunch and told I could catch the base bus from Deans hotel. The swimming pool was under constrction, tried my hand with bowling and stumbled at 17 felt very sheepish.Susan Spooner the Col pretty daughter encouraged me to bowl again and be steady I did get a few pins. I remember all visitors to PAF base Peshawar was closed from April 26 and as member of Shaheen Air Scouts couldn't fly the Gliders till after May 5, 1960. Today at 79 I have to explain to others born in late 70s and later the U-2 didn't take off from Badaber and it's not a bomber but a high altitude recconaisance plane that can glide silently to pick and transmit soundwaves. I wish all members and their families ''Stay Safe and Blessed.''

Best Regards

My father, Captain Arthur H. Anderson at the time, was stationed at Peshawar from'61 to '64. I was just a small boy at the time, but I can still remember the base, and the locals who helped around our house (Sadan). My Dad retired in 1978 as an O-5 and passed away in Jan 2020 at 91 YOA. I also served 20 years in the Air Force, retiring as an O-5 in 2002.

I was assigned to Peshawar TWICE, but my second tour was cut short. Thanks to being accepted to the Airman, Education, and Commissioning Program (AECP), my second tour was only about six months long.

Had been listed on your organization under my wife, Dianne Brinda. I have no idea how that happened. Trying to correct. Had been listed by Harry Hawthorn in five years ago.

I don't know if I have told you, however, a few of the people our crew had on board have passed on, and I have a location on one or two others.

Jim Burch - Baker's flight command passed on in 2006 in Oregon. We had quite a few visits when he lived in AZ.

Harry Tillman - Mission Supe - lived in Alabama, and he too is gone. We had a couple of conversations, and he really loved "re-living" some of the better time.

Jim Lenz - S&W was in Bangor Maine, in a home, and didn't want to remember anything about Peshawar at all.]

Jim Henley, Chinese Linguists and analyst, was living in Washington State and very friendly in talking about and remembering the 37th.

Steve Arrington SSgt 202 lives in Washington or Oregon, and I believe is now a methodist minister. Great talking to him.

Steve Huntington another SSgt 202 re dittos above.

If you haven't been to a PAS Reunion - make sure you go - you'll never know who you might meet. If you want to talk to some other USAFSS friend, or make knew acquaintances, or just BS about the old times, contact me. I am a member of the "Spooks Group". A bunch of us old USAFSS Old-Times. We have zoom meetings every Tuesday and Saturday at 8pm Eastern Time.
