This site is dedicated to
the memory of the 6937th Communications Group and to all those stationed at Peshawar Air Station. PAS was established
in 1958 as an isolated detachment of the United States Air Force Security
Service located in a remote area south of the city of Peshawar, Pakistan.
The veterans of the 6937th
are proud of their service. It is the intent of this website to help
preserve that pride by sharing the history and memories of this important
intelligence unit while hopefully reuniting some past friendships or
creating some new ones. All alumni of PAS are welcome to send us
their special memories, experiences, or photos that they would like
included in this website. All visitors are encouraged to sign the
Guestbook and participate in the on-line Forum.
Special thanks to all the
Alumni of Peshawar Air Station for their contribution to this
website. Without your photos, information, and above all, your
encouragement, this project would not be possible.
The Peshawar Air Station
was formally closed on January 7, 1970, but the memories continue to live
on for the "Peshawar Bandits" who served in the North West
Frontier Province of Pakistan.

spirit and memory will live on amidst the music of the spheres, refreshed

wasn't long after Sept. 11, 2001 that all the newscasts were filled with
stories and commentary about Pakistan and
Afghanistan. Memories of my time at Peshawar Air Station
came flooding back. Having lived in that part of the
"world" for 15 months of my life, it wasn't difficult to
understand many of the issues that the rest of the country was now
hearing about for the first time.
had long wanted to try my hand at developing a website - one that could
generate a following and would have sufficient content to keep everyone's
interest. Thus, www.6937th.org
was born in October 2001. This is a work in progress and a special
thanks and appreciation has to be given to all those fellow alumni of
Peshawar Air Station for their ongoing contribution and commitment to
My time at PAS was from July
1966 to Sept. 1967 as a 2T Staff, 292x1 Dittybopper
on Able Flight. I look forward to hearing from other PAS Alumni as
we all work to keep the spirit and memory of PAS alive.
