"1966 Dad was stationed here, for flight training, I was a little kid, we just came down from Alaska, having survived the 1964 earthquake. We lived off base, on Wallace Dr. After this posting we moved back to Arizona to Luke AFB, then my dad went to Vietnam for a year and used his T-38 training over there, and flew some two thousand missions. We had a chance to see him at an officer's bungalow in Hawaii. I just remember how tired he looked, when we first saw him, after all that time. Years later we were living in Texas, in Austin, Berkstrom, AFB. A hurricane, was cumming up the gulf of Mexico, and my dad flew our private airplane up to Webb for safekeeping while my Mom and I followed up in our then new Honda Accord. This is in 1979. We even stayed in the same Holiday Inn we stayed in so many years ago. The hanger 25 museum was not there yet, but my dad drove us out to the other side of the airfield, to a squat concrete brown Cinder Block Building, he went over to a window, and peered in, and remarked, "my desk is still there!", and he looked at me, and said"Do you remember all the guys standing here with me, while we are waiting for our wives to pick us up?" I did, He looked real sad, and said, there are a lot of ghosts here, all of those men, died in Vietnam, and two died here training on General Electric Motors , Jet Engines, that just blew up, killing them. Sylvania Engines were the best!" We stayed for a couple of days, and my dad flew home in time to see a twister hit Robert Meullar Airport, where we then lived nearby. Years later I became a trucker, I had the pleasure of picking up loads of coca cola, and parking my big rig where my dad used to park his fighter. Hanger 25 was a mess, all the windows broken out, and I wished something could be done with it. I have a photo of my father kneeling in front of his T-38, in the "inspection Hanger" as what they used to call it. But all the glass windows were smashed, and it was a shame to see that. Don't people have any respect? Anymore? I visited the hanger a few times after that, and each time I went. It seemed to be in worse shape, than the last time, Until, the last time I was there, and the place was locked up, all the windows fixed! Thank God, somebody, other than me cares! Nice to see this wonderful old building, Is being used for a good purpose, instead of being a mess, full of broken glass, and shattered dreams!"

"Hello, my name is Christopher Llyod Rogers (USAF Ret) and I am the son of deceased SSGT Ronald Lloyd Rogers and Martha F. Rogers. My father served at Webb AFB in the 1964-1966 timeframe before being sent to serve at Udorn, Ubon, & Thakli, Thailand during the Vietnam War where he died in service. I'm looking for anyone who may have know my father while he was stationed at Big Spring AFB in or around 1965. My father was an aircraft mechanic in the Field Training Det. and was an Aircraft Maintenance Instructor. I was born on Webb AFB in October 1965 and have been trying to piece my father's military history together my entire life. If you or someone you know may have served with him please feel free to reach out to me via email chris@qleap.us "

"Was a T-38 IP with the 3560th PTS from Oct 1965 thru Jul 1969. Transferred to 561st TFS at McConnell AFB, KS. May 1970 sent to 333rd TFS, 355th TFW, Takhli, Thailand. When I stepped off C-130 at Takhli was met by Doug Wingate a former Webb IP and "Wing Weenie." He stated I was "D" flight cmdr as of that instant. Flew the F-105 D, F & G. Forty eight combat missions and they shut down the strike missions and I led the last flight of 6 "Thuds" from Takhli to McConnell and turned them over to the national guard. Was assigned to the 56 SOW, Nakom Phanom to finish my tour. Col. Jim Rouch, also a former Webb alumni, was the vice cmdr. Went back to McConnell and flew KC-135A's until retirement in Jan. 1975. Privileged to fly F-89D, & H, T-33A, AT-33, C-47, TC-121C, RC-121D, T-38A, F-105 and KC-135A. Worked with an aerospace company for 23 years before retiring for good."

"I was a Flight Instructor at Webb after I returned from Korea in late 1954, and taught there until I was assigned to another AFB January 1, 1957. I was a Fighter Pilot in Korea. I have many memories of my assignment at Webb. I recently toured the Hangar 25 Museum, and enjoyed my visit. Other assignments were in Malden Mo, Alaska, Randolph, and others. My hometowns were Itasca, and Grandview, TX. I also was a Captain for American Airlines until I retired in 1990."

"I serves at Webb AFB in 1971 and early 1972 as a 57110 (Aircraft Crash and Rescue Specialist). I remember the flight line full of T-37s and T-38s. We trained and remained ever vigilant for the eventuality of a emergency. We were their to save the lives of our pilots and crewmen in the event of a crash. Thank God we were only called on twice. Once when a Blew Angel pilot made a hard "carrier" landing and blue out his left wheel. The other time was when a Thunderbird, upon landing, cut a taxiway just a bit to short. It had just rained so the F-4 got stuck in the mud. After Webb I was transferred to Anderson AFB on Guam where the planes were just a bit larger (B-52s) but the mission renamed the same.
