I PCS'ed from RAF Upper Heyford, UK in May and it must have been all of 50 degrees when I left Heyford. When I arrived at EAFB on Memorial Day weekend, it had to have been 95 and with a like humidity level. Also went on some good TDY's from EAFB.
All you old ammo troops out there, be sure to drop me a line.

Email: Namusaf7071@aol.com
  (I was stationed at England AFB from Sept 1971 until my discharge in June of 1973. ( I was not smart enough to re-enlist ). I was initially assigned to the 4403rd FMS, and later the Flying Tigers were re-activated as the 23rd TFW. I was a reciprocating engine mechanic, 43251, working on C-123's. The funny thing is that EAFB was the last place I wanted to go after Vietnam. I wanted to go to either the east or west coast. I made the best of it, and found the people to be very friendly. I was a member of St. James Episcopal Church, and attended stock car races at Forest Hill Speedway. As a result, I have been back to visit often, and will be in town the week after next to visit my "adopted family". Alexandria is one of the places high on my list for my upcoming relocation/semi-retirement. It was a bit sad to see the base in its current state of disrepair-my old dormitory and chow hall were in pretty sad shape.)

Major Hiltz was my boss at the time (Great Guy.) Good luck to him in his retiring days. It was great to see that the golf course has vastly improved. In fact, the local community has put in a brand new course. I'd love to get over thee and play a round. I would be happy to hear from anyone that cares to chat about old times.)

(Was also my first duty assignment, had a lot of fun there and paid for every bit of it.  Got married there, Cindy Edwards (CBPO) and divorced soon after I left.  Many fond memories, went back this past November and was saddened by the lack of use for the base, housing is used, part of the flight line, but most of the support buildings and main base are fading in non use.  Still brought back a flood of memories, many nights keeping watch and chasing the bad guys.)

I still have copies of the tiger talk Base paper and pics of the F-105 and F-86 being unloaded when we got them on base. We unloaded them with forklifts. Col Brooks DCM, Col Profit,Col Jamerson Wing Commander, were all there. Left Alex in 1992 and moved to Fla where I'm a Veteran Rep for the State. And Have ran into people here that were also at Engalnd AFB. So Drop me a line. The f-105 on display was flown by the Safety Officer at EAFB during Vietnam before they took it out of service. We both arrived at EAFB together. And I won't forget his face when we unloaded it off our truck.    Howard.

EAFB was my first Active duty assignment, and I really enloyed my tour there. I made some great  friends and have some great memories of the days there. It a place where I learned many new things and coming from Illinois was my first real taste of the "SOUTH" . The people were generally friendly, but I always made sure and told them I was AIR FORCE from England and not ARMY from Fort Polk. That seemed to help!! I still was amazed at the differences in race relations. I worked with a black supervisor Sgt Leon Carey and yet there were places we could not go and have a drink together in. That still is so strange to me. I hope that type of attitude is gone, because we just don't need that crap anymore. Thanks for the memories!!

EMail: ninthaf@aol.com / A rather funny tale: As you know, AEX shared the airport with Delta Airlines who had a small terminal just down from Base Ops. My first morning at Ops I took a break and slipped over to Delta for a cup of coffee and a doughnut. The first sip of the coffee nearly floored me and I couldn't figure out what was wrong but guessed it was just a bad pot. Days later I was back again for a cup and the same thing happened. Finally, I inquired and the girl on duty asked what was wrong. I asked if anyone had accidentally spilled iodine in the urn because that's what it tasted like. She was shocked to say the least, poured herself a cup, tasted it, got a big smile on her face, and asked where I was from and how long I'd been in Louisiana. When  told her, she broke out laughing, telling me that the "iodine" taste was chicory! Now, this is a TRUE story, I swear! And, for as long as I remained in Louisiana, I could never get used to that taste! Would like to hear from other "old timers" who were at AEX when it reopened in 1950.

(Was an Air Traffic Controller (tower & rapcon) for 4 years. It was during my shift that the commissioning flight check was made for the existing control tower from the old wooden tower with the outside steps. I-we loved the place. Lived on Texas Ave out by the Health Clinic near the water tank off McArthur Drive. Went flying back seat in a T-33 piloted by Capt Robert M. Bond doing acrobatics during Armed Forces Day Air Show in May 1959. Capt Bond went all the way to Lt Gen and was killed flying a Russian MIG (exploded.)

TSgt George Fox was may last Crew Chief and Carl Spradlin was are 2 Man we were on a Maintenance/ Load Crew. If anyone reading this remembers the 30 mm GAU/8 that was jammed and went to the Armament Shop instead of the Gun berm and fired off a round bounced around and hit several items in shop including a LAU/88 AGM/65 Missile launcher before exiting the roof of the building. Well that was my crew that was ordered to take it to the Armament Shop with loud disagreement from TSgt Fox. There were 8 persons in that shop that night and luckily  none were hit. I am now retired as of 31 Dec 2005 and living in Panama City near Tyndall AFB.) 

RODGERS, Tom / Spouse: Kathy / Lt Col / 23 TFW / July 1988  - March 1991 / A-10 Pilot - CVI & Chief of Stan/Eval
EMail: Trod348@aol.com
My father's family was from CENLA (Glenmora with a few relatives in Alex and Colfax). My grandmother was the town clerk of Glenmora and I remember when the F-100's of the 401TFW missed Claiborne range and bombed the town by mistake in the late 50's. I took my first USAF physical at the old base hospital there in 1968 while in AFROTC at LSU. I flew F-111's and A-10's during my time in the Air Force. My career came full circle when my last assignment was to England AFB.  Our oldest son caught his first bass in a pond on the golf course by the back gate the evening before I deployed to Saudi Arabia in Aug 1990. I retired from the USAF in Mar 1991 We now live in Colleyville, TX (a suburb of the DFW metroplex) and I am a pilot with American Airlines.

My wife Kathy has just published a novel The Final Salute. The story takes place at the base renamed Beauregard AFB (named after Camp Beauregard).

EAFB definitely gets the nod for working environment, as it was a dream working on the "Hog". A-10 was/is a wonderful Acft and glad to see it in various programs that will keep it flying another 20+ years to come! Don't recognize but a couple names on here......Richard Ray as a legendary Black Section name! But you guys in Red would have to remember Country & Duff!

(I arrived at England AFB in the fall of 1969 and was assigned to the CBPO  (personnel) where I handled things like retirements and administrative discharges. Looking back at those days, they were some of the best times of my life and am really glad I had the opportunity to work there. I met my wife at England where she worked in the Admin section of CBPO. When she arrived, she was one of only a very few females on base and I was extremely lucky to be the one to grab her. She was a pure bred cajun and taught me about the wonderful culture of Louisiana and the cajuns (if you live in that area, make sure you take advantage of the wonderful food and music). I have not been back to England AFB but one time; it was about 20 years ago before it closed. We visit relatives in Louisian frequently and we always want to see what has happened to the base but have not made it yet. It sounds like it is a real nice place now but I am sure it has really changed since we were there. )
