"I was stationed there 1973-1976. Air Traffic Controller, Martin County GCA.
Great town. To be from.
"From Mostly Malarkey's "Poetry 4 Dummies"
Another walk around - the 2,000th one
Strap into the hot-seat - the check list is done
Fire up the engines - get ready to roll
Pull out the chocks - once again on the go
Out to the runway - cross over 35 right
Vance Four One Niner - ready for flight
Forward the engines - to maximum power
Another work day begins - accelerate passing the tower
Pull up the nose - wait for the lift
Fly off the concrete - a wing's magical gift
Aloft once again - up come the gears
Just another job - after a couple of years

"I was a student pilot in class 66-F. Gene Johnson was my instructor and he can be found with a comment on the guest book pages. Went on to fly F-4s out of Ubon, Thailand and did take part as a Gib in Operation Bolo. Another student of Johnsons was Bob Houghton who was on the famous Pardo's Push. Another member of the class is David F. Gray who is my youngest daughter's Godfather and was a POW (F-4 shut down out of Ubon) for over 6 years and is well known for his MIA /POW activities . email@example.com"
"This is a great site. I was born here in 1972 - dad was stationed here, working on T-37s and T-38s. I left at age 3, but remember horny toads, stickers, and rattlesnakes! I drove through Big Spring many years ago and recognized some of the landmarks. I know we lived on Langley Drive."
"Graduated UPT with class 67-H, flew EC-121, C-130A, B-52G at McClellan, Naha, Robins, Anderson, George, Osan and Blytheville. Retired 1987. Have not visited Big Springs since graduation but planning on doing so in 2010, hopefully in conjunction with the reunion. Any 67-Hers out there, please email me at c130aNOSPAM@emarqmail.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."

"I first ran across this web site on March 24, 2009. and posted some comments at that time. I continue to return to it and review the latest entries. I was stationed at Webb from September 1954 thru late 57. The statement that I find in almost all posts is that "Webb assigment was the happiest and best remembered assignment thzt I had". I have to agree, of my 7 base assignments over the years, Webb was the best.
Happy Holidays to all Webb personnel!! Chuck"
"I enjoyed the recent Webb Reunion and would like to share some ideas for locating former classmates/fellow service members for future reunions. A class or unit reunion can fit in very nicely with a Hangar 25 Museum Webb Reunion. First, you need a list of names, from yearbooks or orders. Databases today sometimes are very strictly First Name, Middle Initial, and Last Name. In 1963 I was officially 2/Lt Lloyd L. Boles, but my friends knew me as Logan…and I am almost always found today as Logan. I use an excel spreadsheet to keep my class information. The spreadsheet can be emailed or printed and mailed to folks who don’t have computer access.
Several resources are available to locate people. On the internet, anywho.com and whitepages.com yield good results. Active pilots may be found on landings.com or even the FAA web site. Ten years ago, USAA was very helpful. As I recall, we sent our reunion letter to USAA along with a list of names. If the classmate was a customer, USAA mailed our class letter and their cover letter explaining the forwarded reunion information. Finally, many classmates have kept in touch with a few folks, so each person you find may have more information. Knowing state and approximate city location will help with internet searches. Email will be the easiest and cheapest way to connect, but expect to use your telephone and the U S Mail. We found all but one classmate and that guy washed back to our class late in our year. We lost a few in Viet Nam and now the “deceased list” is growing.
Not everyone is interested in reunions and some folks have health or financial issues. We have had three reunions and only about half ever show up. In the final analysis, those who want to and can will come; those who don’t want to or can’t won’t come.
"I was stationed at Webb 68-72 as an instructor flying T-38's. Living on Albrook at Webb. Webb was like being on a remote island with the many social activities and sporting events to keeping up your morale!. I was later transferred to the Training Sq and then Chief of Academics. Friday night s were exciting at the o'club and then on to the Mexican restaurant-Carlos's? I was very involved with the local community being president of the Big Spring Jaycees and still have many local friends. I have many food memories and one of my best assignments. My claim to "fame" at Webb was I ran the fastest 1.5 mile in ATC for under 35, thanks to Cal Lowery who cheered me on! I left there in'72 and went to Laos as an Ass't Air Attache and then on to the Pentagon.
"I was a T-37 student pilot from Central America and graduated with Class 75-07, 11April,75 when Robert A. Owens, Colonel, USAF was Commander of the base. After returning to my country I flew various models of aircraft thereafter. Now I leave in CA."
"Came to Webb in '58 from overseas was part of the Air Police Sqdn spent May June July and Aug of that year as a Lifeguard at the officers club pool. Best AF assignment in 4 yrs. I enjoyed Webb and even saw a snowstorm in '58. I remember a crash of a C-47 nearby We provided security for thr site "
"Well it looks like the ,,",,is still showing up in that address so like I previously said don't copy it,,,I finally found out the hangar I worked out of was T-1. The friend who contacted me thru this site also told me that the original T-1 was torn down and rebuilt after I left,,and another interesting fact is a movie entitled,",Hangar 18",,,was partially filmed at T-1. I looked that title up and it says part of the movie was filmed in Big Spring Tx,,anyone else know about that."
