Does anyone remember the Oktoberfest held in '68, where tables were set up in the street outside NCO club, with wives dressed in German costumes, serving beer? I still have the beer stein from that. Also bribed a wife to take off her garter, and give me a kiss....I think I had to promise a $5 tip to get them! Too many memories to recount here.

Comments:Just came across this page,, really brought back memories. I was with the ASA and was at that "place" in '66-'67 (can't or don't want to remember the exact dates). I spent most of my spare time at the NCO club, convenient since as I recall our barracks was right across the street from it. I know us ASA guys were not the most popular people at that place (with good reason now that I look back at it). Promotions in the Army at that time were obscene to you guys. At least the 2T's were in about the same boat and we did get to get away from the place once in a while. I remember trips to Lahore a couple times in the black chevy station wagons driven by our Paki drivers. That is a story in itself. Great site and will check in from time to time.

Comments:I served in Peshawar and played guitar with the base band "Soul Survivors" - Stones, Animals, Lovin'Spoonful, Blues - no Beatles, that was too difficult. When we started, we sent our other guitar player (Norm Courney) to Beirut with three hundred dollars and he returned with three guitars and an amp that we both played through. When we left in 67 we sold all the equipment to some young guys who had just arrived and wanted to start a band. I can't remember their name, but maybe it was Jim Sheehan's group. A local Pakistani group, Ivan and the Megatons, wanted to buy our stuff, but we didn't want to be paid in Rupees! Band members also included Capt. Byron Quann on bass, his wife, Pat, and Chuck Giglio on drums. Denny Norwood or Richard Flamminio: get in touch!!

Comments:Believe it or not, Peshawar probably was the best learning experience of my life. Didn't know how much I had till I saw how the other side of the world lived. Was there during 1965 India-Pak war. Tour ran out in Nov 65, but could not get out of country, so I was extended indefinitely. Asst Base Commander came to my position around Dec 19th and ask me if I would like to go home for Christmas. You know the answer. Was probably the fastest processing in history. Had to come back on Pan Am round the world flight. Will never forget mud caked barracks, nightly air raids, and blackouts that caused many a tumble into bushes coming out of ops building. From what I see in recent news, Peshawar hasn't changed much, probably never will!!!! If anyone remembers me, would sure love to hear from you!

Comments:I was one of the 2T SSgts coming out of Darmstadt, Germany. I played flag football and did a lot of spring board diving at the pool(also worked as a life guard for a while). CMSgt Bruce H. Barr was the Mission Supervisor on Dog Flight. He did such a good job of motivating me that I stayed in the spook business for 26 1/2 years (spending 21 1/2 years overseas without a state side assignment) and retired as a CMSgt. Many a time folks have asked me what my worse overseas assignment was and I would instantly respond PESHAWAR PAKISTAN. Now at age 61 I have mellowed, but not my attitude about THE SMELL OF PAKISTAN! But the folks I met there were super! I had a really good buddy by the name of Larry (Many Eagle) Tailfeathers. Hard working and hard drinking ditty bop. Regards, Panama Joe Reynolds

Comments:Had my experiences in Peshawa from Jun 64 to Sep 65 on Able Flt as a 292X2. I enjoyed my time there, but have never wanted to return. It sure seems like an eternity ago. It was an experience. Went to Darmstadt Germany from there and spent 3 wonderful years. Retired in San Antonio 1983; civil service from 1985 - present. Moved to OKC when Kelly AFB closed (what a shame). Would like to hear from anyone from that period.

Comments:Just had a reunion with some guys from the 6981st Sec. Group. Elmendorf Alaska. What a blast we had. Gary Rutledge, Dick Gubala and myself were also old 6937th Sec. Gp. alumni. We talked about some of the times we had, some good, mostly bad. Dick Gubala was a basketball coach, but can't remember any guys who played on the team. Anyone remember playing on Dick's team? He said you all stunk, but had a good time traveling around and seeing the sites, ha ha.  Seems like the name of Hawk pops up a lot. Anyone know Hawk? If anyone remembers or knows of someone who remembers Dick, let me know by shooting me an email, and I'll get back to Dick. Gary remembers more than the rest of us about Pak. He tried to make the best of his tour, I don't remember much and neither does Dick, other than it sucked, is all he says, ha ha.  Dick does remember traveling around in a bus with the basketball team to different countries, like India. Let me know of anyone has any info.

Comments:Was a 203 at Peshawar June 66 to Sept 67, a "2T" Ssgt. in charge of the203's. When I first got there I was put on AP duty driving a Ford van with an M1 carbine and 1 clip - not inserted-and NO radio - just to drive around the interior perimeter all night. Favorite activity at that duty: Popping toads in the road! I believe I was on Able flight. I remember Major Mullaney, a great band at NCO club, flag football, a fine major's daughter at the pool, and a couple guys: Bill Bennet from Akron, OH & (middle name-"Garvis"*[see note below]) from Tennessee. Also a ?Dick? Able (A1c)  from my section - gave him an "astounding" APR. Stayed at the barracks by the fence and had steak cookout with "Cattlemen's" bbq sauce. We were on duty when Kosmonaut Vladimir Komarov bought the farm on re-entry (parachute fouled). Went to Swat with Bennett and "Garvis" - fixed bean soup with ham hocks from scratch by a river-camped out-survived to fight another day. Did NCOD duty for 24 hours - then slept 20 hours. Room fan caught fire just before I bought it for $20 from a short-timer. Weekly C-141 brought my first set of golf clubs, played at the Peshawar Course, avoiding the "Nulla's" (ditches where cobras lived).  Bought a fake S&W 32 pistol in Kohat.  Hope someone I knew finds me. I was the youngest looking ssgt they ever saw!  * NOTE: This guy wouldn't tell me his middle name until he got on the bus to ship out - now I forget his first and last name! I do know we were great friends there- he was a 292, tall and lanky with a thick Tennessee accent, and was friends will Bill Bennet from Akron-my home town then.

Comments:Of my 20 years in the AF, I rate Peshawar 1st or 2nd, believe it or not. The other contender is Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where I was with the Defense Attache in our Embassy. I learned a lot there. Probably the funniest thing that happened to me was Thanksgiving 1967 over at Don Joy's house in University City. His guard talked a guy walking a camel heading to Afghanistan to come into the yard, and my roomey (Charles Ziegler) and I tried to go for a ride. WRONG!! Camel threw us. :)

Comments:Enjoyed your website. Brought back memories from the summer of 68 and 69. Never thought that this part of the world would be the center of attention like it is now. Took R&R in Kabul. Recent pictures show me that it was a much more hospitable place than now. Old friends Simon Marks (frenchy), Vince Orendorff, roomies Al Ashcraft, Dick Lamphere, Bob(?) Jim Pierson.
