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."

Anyone else remember the Brit family that brought the indian circus to the outdoor theater? Or the two fellas that got permission to go camping and "rock" hunting in SWAT?

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.

Long, long ago and far, far away.....time sho' passes. Worked the Cuban Missile Crisis back in October 1962 and have now been married to a Cuban for 45 years!

Still think of Stan Allen, Jim Taylor, "Bone Crusher", Haniff, girls from the embassy in Kabul, dependents, others, and trips to the Khyber. Hope that those old friends are doing well.

I am now a retired engineer with many good memories......

Saw my first-ever Outdoor Movies; Helped built the swimming pool for first dependents; Summer of '61, coached the Badaber kids, and the base dependent kids basketball teams. Got them to play against each other in the base Gym. Remember Chaplain Van Pelt, and Igor in Mess Hall--saw him years later playing football at one of the English bases (Chicksands?) . Remember Stancil, the Orderly Clerk, signing out those weekend vehichle trips.

Also remember my one 'liquid oxygen' aircraft-ride to Karachi.

Got to fry an egg on the sidewalk that summer...just before it reached 130 degrees plus

Oh yes, Sargent Massey, 6 ft 7 plus, from the 2008th.

Wasn't the same when I returned home. I was better!
