"Spent over 3 years at Webb AFB, worked in the 78th CE Orderly room. I will never forget that place met a lot of good people, as it was my first Base after tech school. The people in Big Spring were always very freindly. Had a lot of friends in the Fire Dept also."

"I was never stationed at Webb, infact I entered active duty Aug 1983, so I never heard of Webb until today. But reading the entries here makes me think of all the bases I've been to in the last 23 years. The Air Force has been my extended family as it seems it was to most of you. This is an excellent site and an inspiration for doing the same for other bases or organizations. Thanks for sharing."

"I came to Webb From Korea in Aug. 54 until I got Discharged in Jul. 56. I was with the 3560th MVS. T/Sgt. Clarence Joseph was my NCOIC. I drove a yellow pickup delivering air craft parts for warehouse 27 all up and down the flight line, different hangars and shops. My last assignment was driving the flight line taxi up and down the flightline. From Arow to Z. cannot wait until the reunion gets here 2008. Maybe i will get to see a lot of old friends. I still remember a lot about the base. Those very bad dust storms and Big Spring. Does anyone remember Mrs. Browns Cleaners. That all the Airmen used ? Hope to here from someone who remembers me. God Bless Richie Austin richya52@verizon.net"

"I was assigned to Webb,right after basic training. I arrived in April of 1970. I was in the motorpool and our chief NCO was Senior MasterSargeant Leroy Rorick. His sidekick was Sergeant Benetz.We leared how to drive anything from pickup trucks,[which we used for taxis}, to 44 foot tractor trailers. I worked the swing shift. Sergeant Cox was the night boss. My roommate was Ralph Cirillo. I vividly remember the gentlemen who worked at the base for civil service. Jimmy Montgomery, Dan Flores, Thurman Hall,Mr. Steen , Jackie Owens, to name a few. They were all great guys to work with.I left Webb the following year and was assigned to RAF Upper Heyford inEngland. Believe itor not, when I left England, I was sent back to Webb . I stayed at Webb for a year and a half until my discharge in Sept !975.Leroy Rorick was still there , but retired. All of the civil service guys were still there.Anew nco in charge- a little short Tech Sergeant by the name of Huey Lee.Our dispatcher was Tech Sergeant Frank Warren . I roomed with him for a time at his home off base. At that time I was married, but my wife was at home in Cincinnati getting ready to have our 1st child.I thoroughly enjoyed my tour{s} at Webb. The work in the motor pool was really great. Driving trucks, forklifts, and driving the flightline picking up pilots. And driving the bus to the local airport, Howard County , to drop off and pick up pilots. Driving to Midland/Odessa to pick up dignitaries. I picked up Spiro Agnew one time at the Howard County regional airport.I could go on and on, but I'll leave the space for someone else. Thanks for putting this Webb site together.I have some pictures, but I have to dig them out and send another time."

"I was a member of Class 58 Mike. Assigned there between Nov 1957 and May 1958. Received my wings on May 7, 1958. After completing F-86 gunnery school, my whole class was drafted into B-47s.

After getting my Master's, went back to McConnell for F-105 transition and on to Takhli RTAFB, Thailand in March 1968. Flew 161 combat missions with 72 "counters" with the 333 TFS (355th FW).

"MY former husband was stationed at Webb from 1966 to 1970, and those were the best years of our marriage. Not only was the base important to us, but the city of Big Springs became our home. Our first child was born at the base. I often reflect on those days and remember sitting at my kitchen table watching the T-38's come in for landings and being able to see the pilots white helmets. You might say we lived close to the base. Finding this web site was pure joy today. thanks!"

"I was stationed at Webb from May 1972 until October 1973 when I was reassigned to Korea. Didn't care too much for Korea, but enjoyed Big Spring and Webb. I was in ground radio repair with 2050th Com Sq. I was at Webb when we switched from the old "tube" ground to air radios to the "ribet switch" transitor radios. The new radios were pretty, worked good, but weren't as much fun to work on as the old the ones they replaced."

"I was stationed @ Webb from November 1962 until November 1965 when I left for Biggs AFB. I was assigned to the 331st Fighter Interceptor Squadron. I can't believe there Is only one other person In the guest book from the 331st. I checked all the pictures of the aircraft at Hangar 25 and didn't see one F-102 or F-104. What's Up With That? I had good times at Webb and In Big Spring. My best friend at the time, Jerry Mitchell, and I had a lot of fun together In town, chasing the grils and going from drive-In to drive-In. I ended up marrying a girl from Big Spring but when I got out of the Air Force we came to California (where I'm from) and I guess the culture shock got her and she went back home, she didn't like Ca. Other than that, just good memories. "
