New website email address

Over the last year or so I have had problems with the yahoo address that I had linked to this website. Emails that should have gone into my inbox were inadvertently being sent to my trash and junk folders and important information was missed.  I apologize to those who took the time to send me information and it was not posted to this website. In an attempt to remedy this problem I have created a new email account:   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it    Please update your address books and send all correspondence to this account.  Again I apologize if anyone has attempted to contact me and I have not replied or posted the information you sent me.

Birth Certificate Information

Over the last couple of years I have received a number of inquiries from individuals who were born on base - requesting information on how to obtain copies of their birth certificates.

The Spanish Embassy in Madrid has a webpage that provides information on the Consular Report of Birth application:

http://madrid.usembassy.gov/citizen-services/passports/reports-of-birth.html

 

If you need further assistance beyond what is contained on this particular page please contact the Embassy at the following email address:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

About Torrejon Air Base Spain

E-mail Print PDF

From the late 1950's to the early 1990's, The US Air Force maintained a presence in the Southern Mediterranean to counter the Soviet Threat to Western Europe. 

The tip of the sword was Torrejon Air Base, Spain out side of Madrid.

Torrejon began its life as a support base for Strategic Air Commands (SAC) Reflex missions in the late 1950's to mid 1960's. It provided ground support, tanker support, and air defense for SAC's rotational alert forces, as well as supporting the Spanish Air Defense System.  Later in 1966,  with the arrival of the 401st TFW and its F-100's, Torrejon became USAFE's primary non-nuclear contingency operations wing, providing rotational and rapid response forces to other European and Middle Eastern locations/ primarily Incirlik, Turkey and Aviano Air Base, Italy.

 My objective is to obtain pictures, patches, stories, documents or anything that pertains to Torrejon AB, Spain and any of its tenant units and present it on this website. The website will serve as a place document the overall history of all USAF forces stationed at Torrejon as well as a place to socialize and reunite with old friends.
 

                                 If you have anything Torrejon AB related - please feel free to pass them along and I will get them added to the site.
