"I am a former F-100 pilot with 128 combat missions in Vietnam. I am a member of the Super Sabre Society (http://www.supersabresociety.com/) and Chief Information Officer for the Friends of the Super Sabre (http://friendsofthesupersabre.org/).
The Friends of the Super Sabre's mission is to preserve the history of the F-100 and we are currently compiling a list of existing F-100s around the world. We will use a Google Map to show the exact location of each and have a pop-up window that provides details about the aircraft, pictures and links to its history and museum web page. Check out our web page and be sure to become a member."
"Served as a T-37 instructor and wing scheduler (under DO) from 73-77. Worked with the greatest bunch of maintenance guys in my 20 year career. Started the process of shipping out aircraft while maintaining student training to the end. Fond memories of dust storms and sand hill cranes on final. Good memories all.
See attached photo of the Webb "Bicentennial Birds". Rumor was they weren't allowed to go to Randolph on x-country flights : )
Thank you for the memories"
"i was at Webb 1970-71 in T-38, FOX flight. Worked for Msgt. Gerry Dinger and others I worked with we're Tsgt. Sam Williams and Ssgt. Ed Wertz. The last eight months I was Fox flight swing shift supervisor. We loved the friiendships we made at Webb including people down town. We had our first daughter at Webb, she had a lot of problems at birth which required her to be nin an incubator . At that time there was only one fully operational available and it was in use. I called the flight shack and the guys came to see me , went back to Hangar 25 and scrounged enough parts to help us get the incubator operational. My daughter and I were airlifted to San Antonio with the incubator where she passed away a week later. We want to thank the commander and all of my flight line friends who helped us with food and caring when we got back from burying her at Fort Sam Houston. A truly great bunch of people!!! Does anyone remember the name of the fuel truck driver who wore the train engineer cap and bib coveralls? He was hilarious and a great guy. Rick Gronkowski "
"When I arrived in Jan. 1951 it was still Big Spring AFB.. Didn't become Webb until May or June that year. Lots of the housing had not been completed. Nine of us were transferred from Randolf AFB to open the motor pool. Left there in Oct for Korea'"
"I was stationed at Webb from Oct. 74 until late 1977. I was assigned to the Supply Squadron with duties at Individual Equipment, tool Issue and also in Base supply training dept. I also spent time with the Security Police. I have great memories of my time there as this was my first permeant duty base. I lived off base on Cardinal street and was neighbors with many AF families. I plan on visiting this area soon to relive many of my memories of this place. Thank you for helping to preserve the memory or Webb AFB."
"I was stationed @ Webb AFB from July 1976 to Sept. 1977. Had great circle of friends, including a couple I currently stay in touch with. Worked in the in-shop area of the engine shop working on flow bench,some time on t-wheels and compressors. One of the high points was going up in the back seat of a T-38 shortly before the base closed. I miss Al's BBQ !"

"Stationed at Webb from Sep 54 till Sep 57. Enjoyed every minute of that assignment. The base, town people and all. Met some town people (civilians) Gloria and Leon Byrd. Roller skated with them both (brother and sister) at the outdoor skating rink. Left Webb in 57. Found this website couple years ago. Signed the guest book, and low and behold my old skating partner Gloria Byrd, now McDonald showed up as a member of the Hangar 25. We've been in touch since. Not bad after 50 plus years. Good to have this site back and read all the guestbook entries. Good luck to all Webb assignees. Chuck Bartaway "
"I am researching my dad's WWII service. His name was Sgt. Joseph B. Brown and I believe he was an administrative technician. He was stationed in Big Spring, Texas from 1942-1945. In 1945 he was detached and sent overseas to the Philippines. Anyone with information can contact me at my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. "

"Graduated in UPT Class 72-09 (First Time for 09). Great memories of Webb and my classmates. Glynda and I are trying to find our classmates for a get together. Retired from AF after 20-20 (twenty years & twenty seconds), in '91. Retired from Delta Air Lines in '04. Hanger 25 is doing a great job in keeping the memories of Webb AFB, I was there a couple of years ago and really like the stained glass window. Thanks for all your dedicated work."
