Best years of my professional career and the best people. Moved to NM in South Africa was paradise for white Americans back then. Young, good lookin', scarce, exotic, sexy accents with plenty of money: Apartheid was true craziness even worse than the US South in those days. We polished it every day though. Unfortunately most of the vehicles carrying our transponder didn't go as far as SA or were too far north and they didn't need it for later Apollo or anything else after all.
Waste of money I guess but it was OK for us. Wonder what happened to George Jackson, Don Mergenthal, Wayne Dickey and many others whose names escape my memory at the moment. Am sad to report that Robert E. Olsen, better known as Bob Olsen passed away 31 March , after a courageous battle with cancer.
Was on the range from to If I get an obituary I will post it. KSC Video Systems Cape Canaveral TML This year we are getting together June We started this the year they sank the Vandy as an artificial reef off of Key West. We usually get attendees. Travelled frequently averaging a move roughly every 18 months , living in 15 states plus Washington, D.
Returned to Tacoma, WA. After 30 days I was assigned to communications section on Grand Turk. While in South Africa, I engaged in sport sedan racing my own car , I got bored early on, dropped out of sports sedan racing and entered a different car in an FIA-sanctioned Rallye in Rhodesia, whereupon myself and my navigator were the only "yanks" in the Rallye, even so, I was able to place 7th overall Rhodesian Flame Lily Rallye.
This Rallye officially opened the new highway to Victoria Falls. Also got a chance to get-up-close and personal with wild animals both on-land and on the Zambesie river. After spending 2-years in South Africa, upon the closing of Sta After leaving Argentina, the Vanguard was routed to Brazil for an extended period of time, in order to fulfill a long-overdue maintenance requirement.

On many occasions, it was not uncommon to to drive over miles a week. Woke up this morning thinking about guys I worked with on the Crusader and Sentry. Anyone have info on Mike Allen. He was CCO on both ships. Note change in email address.
Its a new one. My question is this: How many downrange sites were there in my time period? There's a fellow who was there the same time I was, and he keeps posting things about Site 3. I had been to Sites 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7, but never heard of Site 3 or any reference to it. Am I wrong in saying there was no Site 3 , or does he know something I don't?
Please help, and thanks. I arrived as a new hire in GBI in November of Since then, I did field service for Triad Systems Corp. I am now retired from civil service with 33 total years. I was also a helicopter pilot in the Army National Guard for 19 years, and am retired from that also, total 21 years military service. Also, I owned several boats on GBI. One I Built on the beach, an 18 ft.
Last but not least was a 13 foot Boston Whaler. The fishing was good around GBI and I caught a lot, including that seven foot sailfish hanging above the bar at the Club Rondevous. I'm posting this info for Jim Pollard. This is to inform everyone that Lyle Dillard passed away after a battle with Cancer.
He passed away on the 9th of December in Atlanta. It was very pleasant to see the names of so many that I knew or worked with, and not so pleasant to see the number that is no longer with us. Looking back on my career from a 20 year old new hire in to when I retired in , I would not have been happy and satisfied working at any other field. I feel I helped contribute a small piece of the history made at the Cape.
Some of the remembered events were: Upon witnessing this test, Allen Sheppard afterward made his famous comment: There were such things as the Apollo I capsule fire, killing the three astronauts; setting at a Cape Support console in the Range Control Center and watching the Challenger explosion on TV. I had nightmares for many months afterward. This and other events led to me being diagnosed with PTSD in I had been retired for a while when my wife , my mother and I were watching the Columbia's return and seeing the big "meteor" fireball on the network TV coverage.
This gave rise to a lot of bad emotions as I had experienced with the challenger. Several years past before I could even talk about these two events. Those RR that I remember, either having worked with them, or having contacted them through various events, or they just sharing being there at the same time. That entire group was a hard working dedicated bunch.
I believe I had the best administrative support ever. Sallie passed every security inspection and inventory with flying colors. One individual that made numerous significant contributions to the range radars was A. Peter gained his radar experience working in an engineering group in Germany. He was well acquainted with Werner von Braun.
Peter could tell of some interesting event and issues that were encountered in his work in Germany. He was a great gentlemen and extremely knowledgeable; very pleasant to work with. I will long remember him. Mac would be deployed TDY to the ship during the special mission. Learned a lot from that experience and enjoyed it very much.
I still experience the "launch stress" whenever I watch a launch. But, working at a career like that was worth it. I was stationed on Ascension with Det from Feb to Jan Today Bill had put this entry in my Guest Book, which is for stamp collectors and non- range rats , evidently he overlooked the Range Rat Sign-In Book. The 1st marriage conducted on base. Built house just outside main gate on Queens land sqautter. Became party house after Club closed. Provided electric power to 5 homes Larry Custer,Larry Curry.
Jack Tar West End, etc.. The entire beach area had been over grown with Australian Pines. The beach hut was still standing. You ould not see the fuel tanks from the beach. The pier was still standing. The beachside sand airstrip was not visible for the trees.
The beach road was narrow from the trees. It was like nature had taking it back to pre-base time. The base had deteriorated in appearance. Jack Tar was ramsacked and empty.
Last heard that Disney now occupies the base as a recording studio for it's Carribean Pirates movies. It has Security Guards. There is a paved road from Freeport and power now out to the homes. I can still remember the openings of Freeports Casinos and the 1st group of workers who arrived at the base from London as their plane was to big for Freeport's air strip.
Oh to be back there again.. Those were the days guys and only we can brag about them Best to all you RR's. Stay safe, healthy and happy.. Met one of my wives on Antigua Thai woman name Dang She died Live in China now Had a good time. Originally signed in July At this time, I am just reporting the death of Kerry Coughlin who was on Ascension while I was there in the early s. His obit is a bit in error as he worked in the motor pool on Ascension.
His Obit reads a follows: He worked for Pan American Airlines for several years providing radar tracking on Ascension Island, and after attending the Naval Academy in Florida, he began commercial flight training. He shared countless amazing stories of the adventures he experienced in numerous foreign countries. After Kerry's retirement, he moved to La Paz, Baja California, and continued with his love of fishing, and started a new Astronomy hobby. He traveled around the world on many excursions and cruises witnessing solar and lunar eclipses.
He became known in the Astronomy world as "the man in Baja" as he studied and provided information on occulations. Was on the NASA site in 73 My future wife from NZ flew in by charter from England and we were married there and lived in Two Boats I think we were the 33rd couple to be married on Ascension We have many fond memories of the island and the people.
I can muster mental images of others, but no other names. I apologize for my limitations. I subsequently worked for Electronic Cummunications, Inc. I am retired and continue to live in Los Angeles as near to the sea as I can afford. It's pleasantly surprising to hear of you and your history project, Joe. Sailed with Terry Ash. Was on the TTR Don was a long time down range rat and worked in Maintenance and Management. Don was 83 years old. There will be no services. Enjoy reading all of these entries.
Makes me remember my dad's stories. Marcia's dad made this entry in this RR book in March , as follows: Cape and Down Range.: Many Years of working with and for wonderful, talented,dedicated people on a "real", meaningful functional space effort. After all the dynamic years working for the space effort with "real" people; it was a totally negative experience.
Would like to hear fm anyone in that time frame. At the present time I work in the Defense Industry. Ascension surely was an interesting experience, and is now a source of many great stories. Or how can I get a replacement? I was assigned to Ascension Island from January to January Ralph Jackson who was station manager was truly a pioneer that did everything possible to keep the radio station on the air.
I have fond memories of this island that will stay in my mind forever. My father was Bill Carson. He passed away several years ago. He was also on Ascension, I think in the late 50's and we lived in Eleuthera in the early 60's. I am enjoying seeing some familiar names on this website - only wish I had known about it earlier.! Would like to hear from others.
Hoping to attend the next reunion. There were only a few RCA guys when I arrived so I was responsible for most of the electronics equipment. Later, I moved more into the radar and other data processing equipment. At the time, no missiles had come as far as GTK, so we tracked the aircraft with the transponder in order to keep the equipment tuned to a good working order. We actually tracked it for about half a minute before being told by the Cape to disengage from tracking. I really enjoyed my time on Turk.
Wonderful meals and camaraderie. There I did many trips down range on all the stations and finally to St. It's been fify years since I walked out of Hangar and boarded the old C for the trip of my lifetime - 33 years on the downrange.
Remembering lots of good men there and lots of great times, some like living a dream. I sure would like to have it all to do over again. I can only remember two guys when I was there, by the names of Carl Sassnet and Santore and by Sears who was the mgr of the Purse radar station.
I remember when Pan Am would have our lunches on our private beach etc and I was a member of the Gold Rock Flying Club, where we bought two light planes, one was a Sesna in good flying condition and one was an Eronca Chief which we restore the whole body for flying condition. I spent a month at Antigua and another month at Grand Turk. Then I was assigned to the where we covered the first two sub-orbit shots. I was transferred to the Rose Knot and we covered the John Glenn mission from off the coast of Liberia.
Up to my leaving, I had most sea time of anyone. Only one person broke my record since then. I was stationed at Grand Turk from Nov December We worked closely with the Pan American tracking station located at the other end of the island designated as Thinker 7. At the time, this was considered by the Navy as Undesirable duty. Quite a change from what it is now. Great skin diving and good reefs. I worked for FEC in the communications room. My daughter recommended this web site. I don't have alot time at the present, but have bookmarked you.
Will get back with you later. Just an update to current location. Caught in contract reduction in Oct Now i pass my time on line helping beginners write macros for Excel projects. They sent me a telegram to report to Patrick AFB to attend a 2 week class I then worked at Range Safety at Cape Canaveral.. Then Werner Von Braun came with his succesful Redstone launch I then transferred to Grand Bahama Island tracking station to work in Telemetry I then often went to Walker's Cay with another gentleman to work at a tracking van for Cape Canaveral launches..
All of this was in the late 's and early 's I remember while working at Cape Canaveral of North American trying to launch a missile called the Navajo It failed each and every time trey tried to launch..
Either scrubbed or it blew up.. So it became know as the 'NeverGo' The North American employees where told to take a vacation eventually.. The rumor was that while on vacation they where all laid off and that was the end of the NeverGo missile project.. The first launch attempt, in November , failed after 26 seconds of flight.
Ten failed launches followed, before another got off successfully, on 22 March , for 4 minutes, 39 seconds of flight. A 25 April attempt exploded seconds after liftoff, while a 26 June flight lasted only 4 minutes, 29 seconds.
Worked at TV Operations for a lot of years and then my group was moved to another company. I finished working as a supervisor for a Antenna Maintenance Group. Hello, I am the granddaughter of John J Facker who spoke a lot about down range while I was growing up. My grandfather has been passed away for 14 years but I still think of him daily and miss him to this day. I would love if anyone on here had worked with him and if you could fill me in on any stories about my grandfather so that I can add them to our family history for all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Joe Collins, Joe Tudder deceased.. I'M going to GBI on vac this april. My best to one and all. Found your Range Rats site for the first time this morning and saw some familiar names from yesteryear working on the Eastern Test Range. Attempts to email Tom at the email address shown for some of his message entries came back as Error Messages. Could not find an email for Wally. Any contact info on these two would be greatly appreciated.
I also remember Tim Eastland when he was on San Salvador. I first reported there as a subcable tech in January Three weeks later a construction crew dug up and severed the subcable. What a harrowing experience for a new kid on the block. Fortunately being new I had been studying the tech manuals and easily found the instructions for cable restoration.
My fellow tech was Bob Johnson from Alabama who had a pitbull named Trouble and played Elvis Presley songs night and day. Would like to hear from any of the Range Rats who may remember me He spoke very fondly of his time on Grand Bahama Island, and now that he is gone, I would love to connect with anyone who knew him. Just an email update and to check and see if anyone knows where I can find Shirley Edmonson, she was the wife of Harold McGoo Edmonson.
They met in Pretoria, SA. Trained at the Cape for a month and then flew down to GBI. Worked for Jim Falkenstein and my bosses name was Lou. Operated my amateur radio station as VP7NN from my barracks. Used to spend weekends swimming at the beach and going down to the West end. Freeport was a logging camp at the time. Almost got chewed up by a barracuda while swimming once. Best wishes to all. They didn't want to let the Russians get ahold of any of the guidance system. Built chain radar system that extended from Cape Canaveral to Puerto Rico.
Tracked missile tests, and a manned space flight. Enjoyed the mission and crewmembers immensly. One of the highlights of my Air Force career. I was chief of the water plant there at Grand Turk Is. I rode a blue Matchless motorcycle around the island and in the surf. Was also a regular at "sick call" at the Conch Club on Sundays.
I was one of the Turks Turtle Diving Club and enjoyed diving in free time. I helped outfit Cs with telemetry gear. I soon transfered to Tel-2 on the cape maintaining and operating telemetry equipment in support of all launches from Cape Canaveral. In , I was hired by Systems Engineering laboratories in Ft. Here, I helped develop the tracking software for the development of Sikorsky's black Hawk Helicopter. Great experience, memories and people. Set up and worked the Transmitter site there down close to the old Research station.
Went back to Mayaguana in Have pictures of most stations where I worked. Greetings you all, ETR was the best time in my life.
I worked in comm, and was at sta 4, 91, 12 and 13 [before they closed it]. Would like to hear from all of you. I was a communications cryptograpic and C Band uplink engineer.
I was part of the first shakedown team, and had many friends who unfortunately I have lost contact with. I was hired away for a classified project involving an Active airborn Electronic Warfare system and spent the next three years with the Navy as a civilian in SE Asia.
The site is fantastic A lot of you spent far more time than I did, and I somehow envy you all a bit. Best of luck to all the current survivors Joe, you have done a remarkable job, putting this together and keeping it together all these years.
I worked for RCA from through We were installing computers for U. I've enjoyed scanning the comments on this site and found several people that I worked with a long time ago. My father, Everett James, worked Eleuthera AAFB in the mid to late 50s and loved the area very muchprobably much more so as he met my mother in the Bahamas. He was one great father and a sharp fellow! I know he enjoyed the old timers reunions when he could get to them!
This is to let you know that we lost him August and his lovely wife Peggy followed him the very end of October. As a family two daughters, son-in-laws and several grandchilden we are taking them both back to Eleuthera, to the beaches, to where they spent their happiest honeymoon years together. I'm looking for information of where they may have spent most of their time. Mitchell A New Zealander who had polio. We have descriptions of the beaches, Queens Hwy, Gouverners Harbor, where they shopped for groceries, etc, and we are hoping to gain more information.
If anyone has any info, photos and stories on Everett James, it would be so helpful. We want to put together memories for this trip as they never got to return for an anniversary. Thank you so much! Your Website Editor Hi.. I signed on to the program and was sent to a nav training school in Calif. After about 6 weeks of nav. I stayed on the ship in dry dock as a watchman until we got into the water.
I am 88 years old now and have problems remembering the dates and some places. From there we went down to our home base in Florida. I enjoyed it very much,especially the chow. Set down table with napkins and silver and a menu with steak and lobster on it. I tell you one thing.. I resigned after the landing, I think, or was it the fly around on Christmas day to work at a TV station in my home town.
Anyway it was a good ride and I enjoyed it. I knew of no one except in the Nav. Anyone in the Nav. Thanks and God be with you. I am relative of John -Red- Durham.
He was married with my aunt Estela Rodriguez. I am writing a book relative to Sabana de la Mar, and the "base" is part of the history of the town. I would like to have more information about the activities and personal stories of those american that went there, also about their marriages, etc. Tahiti, Australia, Mombase, Hoboken Range Rat, ummm yep. Snorkeled with the sharks and morray eels on Ascension. Tried his email but NO reply. If you are there answer.
I'm still here pushing 80 plus The following year I spent on Eleuthera in supply while we two summer hires counted the inventory and rearranged it more efficiently.
These 2 summers were instrumental in my being hired full time upon graduation from U of F the following year. I grew up in Cocoa, FL. There was a man i remember who rode a Vespa to the large dome that was off the base. At the ripe old age of 15 i stayed on the beach, they had a tiny tiki hut there where the locals came to have a drink or three. The crystal cler water was great. There was a sip that came into the pier filled with Ice Cream that made deliveries to many Islands.
We were priviledged to have a good bowl or two of our favorite ice cream, all we had to do was pressure was the salt water off the ship, which was grand fun. Then off to fish for anything that would bite. We did find an old car and refurbished it and drove the pot hole filled Queen's Highway, we got into Freeport an shopped all the shops, i stopped and watch an artist who was comissioned to pain a huge portrait of Her Majesty the Queen of England, i sat for as long as my friends would let me.
Now some 40 plus yars i am an artist. So good to find some one who remembers the Tracking station on GBI. Additional stuff maybe this can get integrated into my earlier post from a couple days ago When I arrived at the old USN base in Trinidad, I recognized I needed some polo shirts and a few other items had to dress to eat in the officer's dining room, at least with a collar , so off to the Navy base exchange.
While shopping I heard a voice behind me asking "Janda, what are you doing here? We had a nice chat over dinner. He was Chief of Staff for the base's admiral. On American Mariner, I started with responsibility for the ship's timing system, keeping it synchronized with WWV and the range time. Later moved to the digital computer designation system, which was probably about as powerful as a modern scientific calculator. At Kwaj, there were a number of "Sprint" missile launches, but you never could see them, they were too fast and all you saw was the smoke trail.
Somebody forgot American Mariner was needed for a couple more Polaris? Tests went off as planned, if I recall correctly, and then I took a educational leave of absence to start college at the University of San Francisco. Retired , and we live in the Endless Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. Travel even more than when working, I think. I have very fond memories of growing up in Cocoa Beach during that time. Watching men blast off to the moon from our house, watching for the ship to come in over the horizon and into port after a mission, seeing astronauts around town once in a while.
It was an exciting time. The friendships we wife Venus and I made downrange are the longest lasting and fondest. So that's where our children, grand-children, and great-grand-daughter live.
Our antenna was always shorting out, so a long-wire was rigged from the base of the 'stove-pipe' mount to the forward mast; and that long-wire antenna was used to transmit the data during the duration of these 2 programs. The Sword Knot did get caught in an Indian Ocean hurricane willy-nilly , off the West coast of Madagascar kt winds , because we departed early from Port Louis, Mauritius, for storm avoidance.
Navy men, off the Valdez, while in port, in Durban. The Valdez was the sister ship of the Pueblo captured by N. Korea and was also kicked out of S. Africa after the U. State Dept's disagreement, with S. Africa, over treatment of the personnel on the USS Roosevelt; aircraft carrier, that made a port call, in Cape Town, after a deployment in Vietnam. We met the Valdez, again, in Mombasa, Kenya, where we docked after getting thrown out of S. Africa by the U. Such is the life of political pawns Some men appeared to be former Pirates.
While in port, we played the Marines a game of tackle football, and then a game of basketball. We won both games. In the basketball contest, Fred Brown scored over 30 points and I had a dozen assists.
After the programs were completed about 8 of the techs transferred to Ascension. Dave Schubert made history by climbing up 'Jacobs Ladder' with a case of beer on his shoulder Hired on with RCA in Met Norb Williams who assigned Fred to Communications; because he had a radio in his vehicle; and assigned Charlie to data processing; because he had a pocket calculator; and assigned me to timing; because I wore a wrist watch.
That is how they did things in those days. I remember that Norb had a large desk pad where he kept all of the personal data of ship riders. We had to take our tool boxes home at night, or else the shipyard crew would cut through walls to steal them My father Lewin S. Days of the Ascension "last chance saloon". Anyone remember him from those days? I am the former wife of Charles Lamb. Charlie died in Moved to Virginia Beach, Va. Charlie moved on to N.
Seattle and settled in Al.. Would love to hear from all. Loved those years, great people. The part of this post written about Charlie Michael's life downrange was moved to the Range Rat Death page however I am leaving in the part of what Christie wrote about her marriage to Charie and friends she is looking for I am sure it is appreciated by many of us RR's.
I went to Bermuda in Oct. We were married on Bermuda in Jan. Joe and Myra Mullin stood up for us, but sadly we lost touch with them.
Would anyone know where they are? I would be interested in hearing from anyone who remembers Charlie. I'm glad to see Alice Hyman finally signed in. She was one of the first females working at Sta. Joan's husband was Geoff, island police commish for several years. Debba's father was the island administrator, Sue was her cousin. They sure changed our workplace, after all those years with no females around the station!
The only one I am in contact with at the moment is Charlie Wright in Florida. In '67, '68 I was one of the British 'locals' but am now a citizen here in the States.
Nov Goddard! I was a range rat from , as I installed communications eq. Thanx Lee your your input, I updated this slightly from your first entry last month. You are certainly a Range Rat which you questioned , and thanx for serving our country. This year is 30 years Traveled with the ships, been to Antigua, Ascension, Saipan and Newfoundland.
It has been a wonderful life, hate to see it change! Worked Apr to Sept I've tried to make it as easy as I could so one could differentiate between my Guest Book and the Range Rat Book when signing in, but I guess I didn't do a good enuff job. Just posted on the wrong site! I just wanted folks to know that Jack Maloney passed away last evening, April 20, At this time I do not have that information.
Jack, an RCA Oldtimer who had the "right stuff" and worked many long hours and week-ends to support the missions. I spent two years on Ascension 2 tours plus worked on San Salvador and at the Cape.
I was part of the group that set up the radio station ZDA. It was probably the best period of my life. Great friends, great job, great partying in Receife Remember the House on Stilts? I was a bar tender there, no pay but lots of other benefits! LOL 74 years old now and running a lot slower. My phone is Those were good times. Those were good years. I am searching for BFEC employees which might know who their insurance carrier was, appreciate any info. Excited to have found a site for "Range Rats.
Back then most of us did a variety of jobs as needed for the launch. I worked the microwave building, minitrack, BC-4 cameras, control center, etc. Selected the first person to attend the A-D converter class. This opened the door for the rest of my career in computers.
Gene Hillesland was my boss on GBI at the time. I enjoyed diving for lobsters, beachcombing, and water skiing through the mangroves. Took an extended leave to The P. Bill Redman emailed me today of another Range Rat death, he writes as follows: Charlie as he was known as to his friends was a Telemetry engineer at Ascension in the early 60's.
I first met Charlie in at the Rock. He was known to play a mean trumpet at some of the parties at the Pan Am beach. He was also an avid skin diver, and a member of the Ascension diver's club. I hope someone out there may be able to supply some more details on Charlie's downrange life.
Sorry to pass along. Recognized several names of people I worked with. Often wonder about them. Anyone who was there during , I would like very much to hear from.
I have fond memories of people and happenings while there. I was only on site for the launch phase collecting 3rd stage performance data. I went back to GT last May with my two daughters to nourish memories etc.
The curator asked me to write a story of my GT experience for their magazine "The Astrolabe. I have lost all my pictures of the island, if you can believe it, and would like to see if you could direct me to any picture showing the Vanguard tracking site, the antennas, just anything to spruce up the article. Thanks for all your good work and effort. You have a wonderful web site. I spent several summers visiting him in Turk and Antigua. Best years of my life. My brother was in a very bad car accident in Antigua or , some one may remember it.
I had a sister Sandy and brother Billy who went to school in Turk. Not to many American kids there back then. Painted Franks car one day and thought he would kill us, but turned out he liked it and kept it that way. Painted the named on a boat called "LadyBelle" any one remember it?
I worked from 67 to Jan on Ascension and Antigua at comm center and receiver sites. I went to work for Xerox in and early retired in Contracted back with Xerox until retirement in April I've missed the down range because of so many friends and good times.
Wouldn't trade it for the world! My initial assignments on the range were at San Salvador and Grand Turk in the telemetry area. In , my employment in the space business shifted to Northern California. My 41 years of service in the Aerospace Industry started as a "range rat" on the MTP which prepared me for a wonderful and successful career in support of our nations security and accomplishments in space. My date of service as Lt. See my published book "Paradise Commander" available at amazon.
I talk about experiences on Antigua.. He could actually stop the plane in mid-air and set the hull down vertically on the water - no wake!
Another is the harrowing truck ride from the base to West End where the pot holes were so deep they were marked with yellow-painted oil drums with just the tops showing. I've got some good stories from Mayaguana and some of the other stations, if anybody's interested. Can't remember the length of the FS ships. Also, looking for a Cocoa Beach apartment mate who I was communicating with but suddenly dropped off the map Is he still around?
Still have fond memories of my brief life as a Range Rat When I read the history of some guys, it amazes me The Wikipedia history of the range mentions the FS ships, but no details Rose Knot, Coastal Crusader, etc. The real adventure began with the little FS ships That was the best adventure of my life.
Hope everyone is still around. Currently, I spend many hours traveling between Eastern and Western Range sites. Kevin put the above entry in the Guest Book 07 Nov. Mike put the above entry in the Guestbook today, and I moved it over here to the RR sign-in book where it really belongs. Obtained MS U of N. With Salt I transferred to Ft. Lauderdale with Southern Bell in engineering.
Transferred to Houston with SW Bell also in engineering and obtained law degree at night. Went with Houston DA's office and then federal prosecutor.
Spent 7 years as a judge. Been in private practice since in Texas. Still flying and taking pictures, also amateur radio: Captain Richard Ranker was actually the commnader from May to June I know this all to be true since I was married to him at the time he was on Grand Turk and visited him there with our two children. Ranker for this info, I am replying here since you didnt leave an email address.
Also a lot of memories of Recife and the "HOS". The good old days!!! My father's name was Earl R. He was employed by Pan Am for about 20 years. He was stationed at Grand Turk Island for several years and various other tracking stations. He started around He was also stationed at Ascension Island, early on and helped build many of the land based stations infrastructure.
My sister Pam, myself,and our mother were able to visit him on Grand Turk due to some family housing available off base. My Dad had many great friends, all over the world, in his fellow Range Rats. It was always a great adventure to visit him, and we were treated so wonderfully by his RR friends and Air Force and Navy friends. Worked on the Water Distillation Plant and Catch basin.
Spent many nights at the Counch Club playing Bingo or drinking rum and coke. Hired a sailing craft on weekends and fished and visited aguanna island and ate our box lunchs provided by the cafateria. The food was great and fellowship even better. Since I was over 21 I bought whisky for the CeeBees and bargined for freash water for the base. My boss told me to clean the salt water filters at the end of the pier.
When I arrived a school of sharks threaded their way in and around the pier piles. My boss got as mad as an old hen and blasted me for not diving and cleaning the filters until he saw the sharks.
I went back to the states and finished college and worked at the Cape for 12 more years. My wife and I intend to take a cruise and see Grand Turk. I hope the donkeys don't rub up against our digs like they did back in Yes, remembering Apollo 11 and Mr. He did it the way it's supposed to be done. I was at Ascension at the time. I came out of the Volcano Club headed to the barracks and seeing a perfect vault of the heavens. Looking west I saw the capsule approaching, venting something and leaving a giant ship-like wake.
It was an astounding sight! I watched it overhead and to the horizon toward Africa - on it's way to the moon. Did we then take such things for granted, little realize the tremendous importance of what we were doing, how rare that opportunity was for us to participate in those historical happenings?
I lived in Grand Turk when you walked on the moon. My dad,Rolin Ebanks was especially proud to work your mission. God Bless you as you return to the heavens. It has been about six years since I first commented.
Live on Hartwell lake and enjoy boating, motorcycling, and jogging with my wife Nancy. I enjoy my saltwater aquarium had one on Ascension back in Enjoyed body surfing on the breakers and snorkeling with the black fish.
The Saints were alway so nice. I am putting below Steve's original entry from Dec so it will all be together, that lists his range experience. He now has a different email address see above , and he still lives in Anderson SC: Hello to Fred Kenney at Ascension.
You are the Master Guru Range Rat. Let's hear from the old crew, hey DOC roomey. One of my bosses was Hoot Ringo. I took him fishing one day when he visited Carter's Cay. Jake Merritt was also one of my bosses. Also flew several times with "Lindberg. I am now a retired Air Force Officer, and retired pastor. I would be interested in hearing from anybody that I worked with or wants to contact me.
Regards to all, Bob. I don't remember exactly when, but I had heard several years ago that Fred Schrieber was killed in an auto accident. I do not have any way to confirm this.
Maybe it was just a wild rumor. Does anyone have ANY info. He used to work at Grand Turk in the s. I think he was in communications. Pact adolescente soirs dramas Ohayooooooo gosa?
