"I was assigned to the 331'st FIS from 1961-'65 as a Mechanical Accessory and Equipment Repmn. I really grew up there. One person I miss is Bill Sharp. When I finally got discharged it hit me while on the bus on the way out, and actually cried for all the friends I would miss.
I got into the aircraft assembly business and worked on the F8, A7, B-1B and B2, ending at United Airlines. "

"I was with the FMS engine shop 68 to 71. Worked SOAP room, test cell J85 & J69, gear box build up and final assembly J85. I learned to fly in the Webb aero club my instructor was Capt. Cook, the airplanes (C150) N6461S, N6693S were $5 per hour wet. I finished up at Kunsan Korea 71 to 72. I got hooked on aviation at Webb and just retired after 36 years with Cessna. Some of the aviation memories of Webb was the big open house air show when they drop a jeep out of the back of a C130 while practicing a chute assisted deployment for the air show, the chute did not work as advertised. The day the C130 ground looped on take off, waited for the dirt to clear and then launched into a 50+ kt. dust storm. The Navy flight of 4 A4 (?) that had one land at Howard county airport and used 6000 feet of a 5000 foot runway, I think it was hangar 25 that housed it during rebuild. The night we dropped an oil can full of JP 4 into the AB exhaust flame at the test cell and lit up the night sky over the base. When the fire trucks arrived they believed the story about a hot start that would go un-noticed during the day light hours. My Christmas ride in a T-38. Vernon Ports and John Hale please contact me if you read this."
"My father was stationed at Webb in 1956-1957. John W. Parker Jr was from Trussville Alabama. I was born there in October 1957. He passed in Apr 1994 before I could ever learn of his experience at Webb. I would love to hear from anyone that may have known him."

"I was an Honor-Grad of T-37 class 75-06 SATP here, at Webb AFB. I never forget my initial-solo flight, a pre-solo one, I've flown with my "Oscar"-flight's Flight Commander, who was Capt. Frank Pickart. My IP was 2/Lt
Daniel Runyan. Dan, I now still have the feeling of hugging each other in wet flying suits then, when both of us have same said 'Congras'."
"Hopeing someone will read this that has some info. My biological father was an airmen from Kuiwait that was stationed at Webb AFB some time during 1974 - 1976. His name was Mohamed Jahmon (not sure of the spelling). He was a pilot. I've never met him and I'm gonna take a stab at trying to find him. If you have any information that could help, please contact me. "
"I was assigned to Big Spring Air Base in late 1945, after graduation as a pilot from Enid AFB, Ok. My job was supervising packing and shipping base records to St.Louis, Mo. for storage. Remember climbing large hill adjacent to the base, nothing up there but a water tank. Flew bombardier trainers for flight time. Home by March 46, and stayed in reserve. Retired as Major in 1982. "
"I am so pleased to have found this site! Course, I feel bad because I didn't notice it sooner! My father was a member of the Class of 70-03, Capt. Steven L. Bennett. He left Big Spring upon graduation and flew B-52's out of Thailand in 1970. He was then moved to Hurlburt AFB for OV-10 training and was sent to Vietnam in April 1972 to fly OV-10's out of DaNang. He was in the 20th TASS at that time. He was unfortunately killed on June 29, 1972 and posthumously received the Medal of Honor. My mother has made memories of Big Spring and her time with my dad while they were there! Years ago I was able to meet many members of his pilot training class in a reunion we held at Wright Patt in Ohio. That was a highlight of my life, it was so nice to meet so many of his classmates! They were all so accommodating and friendly, it was nice to know so many of them remembered by dad. Just the same, it is so nice to know organizations such as this continue to keep the memories alive for so many deserving men and women. God Bless and I hope to make it to the museum very soon!"
"My uncle, Larry Denning Rucker was at Webb AFB in the 3561st Student Squadron Graduating 5 June 1964. He was later killed off the coast of Nantucket in a EC-121 Tail No. 55-5262 on 11 Nov 1966. I am searching for any photos, details, people or other data that can help me in my quest to learn about my uncle. Any help would be much appriciated and very much enjoyed

"Wow, what great memories of my first duty station. I was in the weather group (1976-77). Like many, I went out the gate when they closed the place kicking and screaming, as I just loved it there. Looking for Carol Amick, Tim Middleton, and any others who were working with me during those great albeit short years. Brad Hess email@example.com "
""I am looking for information regarding a man who would have been stationed at Webb at least in 1967 named Lee Suttoon (not sure on the spelling of his last name). Supposedly he was from Syracuse, New York. Any information is GREATLY appreciated."
This is in regards to Betty (Hart) Van Allen who worked a local drive-in hangout. Any info or pictures if you know her would be awesome. Thank-you Judy
