" I arrived at Webb April 1974 and stayed till August 1977. My job was a T-37 Crew Chief in Bravo Flight . I'm still active duty with the DC Air National Guard @ Andrews AFB. Md. Still have lot of great memories of Webb."
"Dont have a Hanger 25 story or picture, but as a boy I lived just off base from Webb Airforce Base. In fact my mom Dorothy James worked on base at the finance center. I was just looking at sights connected to Big Springs when I came across the Hanger 25. What you have done is very nice in preserving its proud history."
"You have done a fantastic job with the new site. I was stationed there from 1975 until August 1977 in the Webb Approach Control. Really enjoyed the town and the people they were great! In fact, hated to leave."
"I would just like to say that the staff and volunteers involved in the operation of Hangar 25 are very professional, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. They are a wonderful representation of Big Spring and an asset to the community. Please keep up the GREAT work in preserving a piece of our valuable history."
"I am a graduate of Class 64-B at Webb AFB. Being proud of my Webb heritage and experience I am saddened that the base shut down. Flying the T-38 was a major thrill and, although I later flew the F-84-F and F-104G in the German Air Force and a multitude of corporate aircraft, nothing has been as memorable as my graduation day September 11th, 1963 at Webb AFB."
"This is a great site and I enjoy going to it often to see the new messages. I was civil service in the Medical unit (Radiology Department) 1956-1958. I did all the separation physicals during that time and met a lot of nice people. Saving the Hangar brings a lot of yesteryear back. Thanks to all who visit this page and maybe one day you can see it for real "

"Greetings great web site It was good reviewing comments of those who served at good old Webb.
That was my first base after tech schools arriving early in 1952. I was an aircraft electrician and was in the Field Maint. Sq. The shop chief was a civilian named Martin Skaggs. We worked on T-28s and T-33s. I was there for 4 1/2 years before shipping out to Chitose, Japan. My son was born at the base hospital 31 May 1956 I stayed in the AF for 20 years and retired in 1971. I will always have fond memories of Webb. P.S. my wife (now deceased) was from Cohoma, Tx. Her maiden name was Gloria D. Owens"
"I was a T-37 IP - flight line - Major Hart's flight - and academics - T-37 IPRA and Flight Planning - 1970-73. Returned for WebbAFB Reunion in 2002 and had a wonderful time. Please keep me on your mailing list for future events. Currently I fly an experimental RV6A, and am president of EAA Chapter 168 in Dallas - we normally meet at 6:30pm on first Tuesday of the month at Library in Farmers Branch, TX."
"I was Air (later Security) Police Officer and Chief at Webb AFB from 1965-68 and Chief of Administration 1968-69. Our best souvenirs are the two children born in the old WWII era hospital. We still recall the sunsets from Scenic Mountain."
"Several of us who graduated Webb UPT Class 74-02 in October 1973 are trying to reconnect with classmates. Send me a note if you were in the class as a student, IP, or if you supported our "Mean Green" team. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. "
"Thanks for a wonderful website and your efforts to preserve our Air Force history. I intend to visit Big Spring on Friday 21 May. The purpose is to do additional research on Big Spring AAF for my fourth book. I write histories of USAAF training fields and have published three books titled Forgotten Fields of America, Vol.I, Vol. II and Vol.III. Each book tells the story of 12 WW II USAAF training fields. As you know, they were small cities and each has a fascinating story to tell. There is very little written about this part of our history and it should be remembered. Almost 15,000 young men were killed in aircrew training during WW II. And that was just at the Air Force training fields here in the US. There were 345 major training fields the size of Big Spring scattered all over the US during the war.
I will be ariving in Big Spring mid-morning from Hobbs, N.M. I would very appreciative if there would be someone I could meet who might have time to spend with me to show me around the former base. Is that possible?
"Two years ago Mr. Clarence Hartfield , a former high school buddy of mine ,gave me a business card with this webb address on it . I haven't seen him since that time. I know absolutely nothing about this site but it is hip. After living in California for many years (I moved to Texas 3 years ago) I, my wife Mary, my son Tim and my daughter Mo, moved to Midland to be with my mother and father (dad was called to his Heavenly mission, Mar. 2000). I am a Viet-nam veteran, a retired Radioshack employee, and ardent fan of Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, and Willie Nelson. I am also a musician of sorts. I vote when necessary,and pray for peace everyday because there is so much trouble in the world. I have five (5) grown children, three (3) of whom live in California and my oldest one (1) whom I believe lives in Augusta Georgia (1966 - ). My youngest child lives with us.Please feel free to E-mail me for a friendly chat.
may God Bless you"
