I was stationed there from October 1962 to November 1964. I was an Intercept Control Tech. When I was there, our call sign was Bloody Buddy. Now from the site history, I see it was Good Book. Am I crazy? It must have changed. Anyone remember Bloody Buddy? Not to PC these days

My father TSGT Lloyd Grant was stationed there from 76-79. I was in the 6th grade then and remember the site really well. It was actually one of my favorite places that dad was stationed at.

My last name is Farman. My father was base commander from the summer of 1973 through the summer of 1975. We missed each other by a year. We came back for a visit in the summer of 1976 and some of my friends were still there. Do you remember the Grants or the Ryders or the Clarks? The Grants had two sons that I remember and Bernard was my age or a little older. They lived in the housing area, too. The whole street was called Ridgeview Village. I think you are right about the school's name.

I was in the Air Force stationed at the (then) Air Force Station in 1962-1963. It is presently a prison I understand. I'm wondering if anyone from that era remembers the NCO club up there? www.rvwithus.com
It's now abandoned It's be occupied by homeless up there. All there is left is a WW2 hanger up there. There is some buildings left over, but nabors burn porn magazines, And repaint the walls. If you need to know the rest of the air base is underground with stuff you no longer need to worry about getting looted. You have the Airport up their but don't trust the locals they usually crash into the ground right after lift off or some other building or object. The only two places left are the apartment building not worth living in and a red building that is left abandoned.

I was stastioned at No. Bend, from 1962-1964, Maj. ken Styles was the commnder. Scotty and Sam were the medics. Bill, a S/Sgt worked in the orderly room, tended bar at the NCO club at night. I worked in the Comm Center for TSgt Carmargo was the boss. A SSgt Mitch, was in charge of wire Maint. The officers lounge was right nexgt door and was self service. We only had 2 telephone lines into town and they stayed busy,RHIP was the order of the day. We had one line to the housing area for 25/30 houses...there monthly bills were prorated (class B-1) I think. We were still pulling KP, about once a month I think...I left there to go to Vietnam.

Hey H. Derosier ... I remember all the names you mention, but I can't place your name at the moment.- you were there the same time I was. I left in October 64 and went to Udorn Thailand. Great to hear from folks that were there about the same time I was.

Dave ... thanks for the "Bloody Buddy" conformation. I was an intercept control tech and remember working with the F101's with a call sign of Papa Lima. I think they were out of Kalamith or Portland. It's been too many years

Phil Kolody was my supervisor in 1975-1976. I think he had multiple tours at North Bend AFS. He rellly liked the area and I think he still lives there! He made E-6 when I was there. He drove a funny car, either a Gremlin or Pacer or some such,my memory is not the best....lol

I remember the beer runs down to Smith River,CA. for the NCO Club to buy cases and cases of Coors Beer because they didn't sell it in Oregon. I had a barracks room,2nd floor to myself and a killer view to the sand dunes and ocean! Wish I could have stayed there my entire enlistment...lol

I was in Operations on the Height Finder Radars, we had 2. The FPS-90 and the FPS-26. Wu used to have weekly PACE (Performance Anylasis by Continuous Evaluation) flights to test the radars(had to be within 1500feet) and the communications.I used to call the aircraft on radio and only callsign I used to identify the radar site was Z-12 or North Bend Radar. I should say hi to Alma Cruse :)

My father SSgt Ronald Chew, met my mother Sharon Martin (base commanders secretary) there in the late 60's. My grandfather MSgt Harold Martin was my fathers supervisor and my grandmother Faye Martin ran the chow hall.
Anyone remember them?
Yes, I remember them all Garrett and Iím sure Walter L. above remembers them as well. I had a lot of fun while stationed there. I believe youíre Mom and Grandparents lived up near Reedsport at the time. I was in Radar operations and your Dad and Grandpa were in radar maintenance. I was embarrassed years later when on the way to California. I drove up to the old station to show my new wife where I had spent 18 months of my life, only to find it had turned into a correctional facility.
