"I was stationed at Webb AFB in the 331st FIS from January 1961 until October 1962, 2 of the best years of my life. I've been lucky in that I've been able to attend the reunions in 2009 and 2011 (hoping for another in 2013). Anyway, since so many of the base buildings we knew are gone, I'm trying to put together a scrapbook of Webb AFB as it existed in the early 1960's. I have a photo of my barracks building including one of inside my room and a photo of the base chapel. Photos I would really like to have are of the entrance guard shack, base theatre, BX and chow hall, inside and out if possible. Anyway, if anyone has photos they would like to share please e-mail me. I'll be glad to pay for any postage and handling if they can't be e-mailed. "

"I was stationed at Webb from 1959 to 1961. My work place was in the office of the BOQ next to the Officers Club. I was also in the supply depot at the Officers mess. I was in barracks 202 room 26, I still have the key.
Most fun was Jackrabbit and Rattlesnake hunting at Vealmoor.
The picture is of me and my wife."

"I was stationed at Webb AFB from 1966-1970. I was a jet engine mechanic and worked at T-1, in engine change and repair. I also served as a trouble-shooter on the T-38 and T-37 aircraft. I would be interested to hear from any airman who served at T-1, or in the Engine shop during the late 60's. "
"I was stationed at Webb AFB, from 1970- 71 and was assigned to the Civil Engineering Squadron, Cost and Real Property Accounting Section. I remember the AF Hospital that had recently been built and we di dnot want to accept it because it had cracks on the floor. When I left, it was still a pending issue.
I have some great memories of that base, and remember a butcher name Joe, (mexican guy) who worked at the base commissary. He and I became friends and we lost touch with each other.
I need your help ex-Webbers...can anyone tell me the unit designator for the Civ Eng Squadron and whether they ever had a unit patch. Please email me, or contact me by phone on my mobile: (623) 696-5056.
If anyone is trying to contact Lloyd B. Stearnes, a UPT student there, I have his information. He left Webb in 1970 and went on to become an instructor I believe from there.."
"Trying to find information as to whether a certain Pilot Training class Patch is from Webb AFB or not. It is a triangle patch with camoflage background and a T-38 aircraft at bottom and 69-E in middle If this sounds familiar please drop me a line and let me know. Thanks, Tom""
"I was stationed at Webb 1962 to 1966. the first 2 years I was assigned to the T-38 Flight line (INDIA FLIGHT). The last 2 years I worked on POST Dock 1 of the PE Hangar T-75. I joined the USAF 2 weeks out of High school along with a friend of mine. His name is Dave Mueller and I think he worked on Hotel FLIGHT his hole tour.
My room mate was Charles (Chic Vaughn) and he also worked on the PE Hangar T-75. Chic and I both married girls from Odessa, TX about 60 miles west of Big Spring. Chic and I move to Houston, TX after getting discharged and got jobs working on T38A's for NASA.
