Comments MOS was 46250, Armament or Weapons Shop from around June of 1964 to January of 1966. SMsgt Cork was our head enlisted and I remember a 1st Lt. Prudhome was our shop officer. Colonel Flake was our Squadron Commander and I got to fly with a Capt. Singleton down to Tyndall and back to deliver some WISM's and MSR's for William Tell Weapons Meet there. Remember very cold winters and the band down at Wolf Point. I was told by someone I knew there that Glasgow has pretty much gone back to the Native Americans. Always wanted to go back but never have.

Comments In eureka springs Arkansas at cadet field saw a f100b. It reminded me of my dad so I started digging around and seeing if my dad crew chiefed on this particular plane. Then I found your site! It was amazing to see his pick again that I have seen so many times in the past. He pastes away about 8 years ago at 65 from a stroke very suddenly. If anyone new my father I would love to hear stories about him. He had a friend named Leon linsey I beleive he worked for the FAA for a long time if that helps jog memories. James moved to eugene after the air force and lived in the area till he passed. Worked for sheppard motors as a service manager for 32 years till march2000 then him and I bought jims tools service and I see still run it today. Please any stories or anything will be awesome!

Comments Well, the 2013 reunion went well. Our numbers were down due to last minute illnesses of some of the 13th FIS family. Although the national sites were closed, Skip Ball was able to organize trips to Boeing, St. Charles, MO and Grant's Farm. Everyone had a great time and the Mystery Theatre dinner was hysterically funny. The next reunion will be in Dallas in 2015 with Skip Ball and I organizing the reunion. We'll keep you posted. Hope you can make the next reunion.

Comments I can't believe that I stumbled accross this site this morning. I was checking weather reports and saw the Glasgow name come up and took the time to google the base. I was with the 91st from 66 to 68 and helped close the base down. I have always wanted to get back up that way to see what ever happened to the facility. Thanks for the wonderful memories and photos.

A couple of my roomates were crew chiefs of voodoos, but can't remember their names. Any one from that period I would like to hear from you.

Comments The venue in Hampton, VA became a no-go for the reunion. Skip Ball, having already been contacted by the Crowne Plaza in St. Louis, is talking to them about a specific date for the reunion there. Jim and I will be working with Skip and communicating with you when things are definite. If you have changed your e-mail and didn't notify us, let me know at this e-mail address or at Jim's: Thanks

Comments Dear readers... If you are reviewing this site we hope you enjoy the old memories. It would be even better if you are somehow connected to the 13 th FIS regardless of location, WE ENCOURAHR YOU TO JOIN US AT THE NEXT REUNION. We need you and your new memories I'm sure your old friends will remember new stories once you get together. Get off the fence and come on down. Of course families are welcome. You might be surprised THEY might see you in a new light, you be the judge. We aren't getting any younger, but some of these memories will fool us for a little while. Don't loose the opportunity to once again remember the good and bad (cold) times that will be refreshed by participating. WHAT THE #$@%! WAS ALL OF THAT? See what happens when you get old remember use it or loose it. Get refreshed whild you still can. I'm certainly not a good example. Hope to see you at the next Reunion.
