MessageAir Force Brat. Dad (Jack Magee) was stationed at KI Sawyer from 73-75. I believe he worked on Radar systems on the B-52. Attended Gwinn High School. I worked on the base in a building (custodial) that had a control board with green, red and amber lights, showing status of each area. Only once for a brief period was the board green when I worked there. KI Sawyer was by far the most favorite of all bases we were stationed at. Great people, great friends. I do plan to visit soon.

MessageOne of my best memories is helping you sall smuggle this aircraft out of AMARC. They (USAF) RELUCTANTLY cut the deal to give it to us, and then tried to renege literally as the truck holding the aircraft was pulling out the back gate. Fortunately for us, they had no jurisdiction once the aircraft left AMARC. Red Bulls: 1. Bureaucratic Government: 0. smilie

MessageI was second officer to report to the 62nd FIS when KISawyer was not operational yet. No runways or airplanes were there. I walked in to the squadron building and up to the only person i saw. He was in jeans and a sweatshirt. I casually said " 'm looking for the CO ". He turned to me and said " I'm Col McNeff". As a fresh 2nd Lt I was caught completely off guard by his casualness . Had to rent an apartment in Guinn since no base housing was ready yet. When the pilots arrives, I got real lucky and was paired with Clyde Dishong.
I live in Loveland, Colorado

MessageSorry about this but I forgot to put the email address in the public spot.

Planning to be at the reunion this Aug and hoping to see a lot of the old timers of the 87th FIS. I was the Commander's Secretary until I was transferred over to the SAC side of the house in DO. When the base closed, I was sent to Tinker AFB and thought I was going to work with aircraft folks but I had a rude awakening, it was completely different. I finally transferred to Eglin AFB FL (my hometown) and Ski followed. I retired 9 Jan 2009 with 36 yrs. I really miss KI Sawyer but have met a lot of folks from KI here in Navarre/Ft Walton Beach, small world. I keep in contact with Lela Murphy, Anne Curtice, Kevin from the 410th, Laura Neason, Maj Greeley, Jerry Murphy, Van AlStyne, Norm/Char Winner and Virginia/Tom O'Grodnick. Would like to hear from some others. Marge Nielsen passed away I was told. Hoping to see you all on the third of Aug. Take care and be safe on the roads.
