Does anyone else remember the payroll for Torrejon being lost due to a terrorist hijacking sometime between June and September 1970? I was TDY from Dover, assigned to the 625th MASS and was paid during that time under endorsed travel orders which I presented to CBPO each month for my pay. This was done rather than transfer my pay records for the short TDY. I remember being one of the few having money on that pay day and having my choice of stereo gear at the BX while permanent party personnel had to wait some time for their money.

HI Dave, I was there from 65-68 625 MASS flightline mech. You remember the blue tubes they told us not to open? Total bullshit. I opened mine many times. It was a scare tactic

Yes, I remember that warning also. It was said that the paper and ink was of a special kind that would be damaged upon human contact. Upon graduating from tech school, we were given ours with orders to safeguard them with our lives. When I got home, I discovered I had a classmates and when I called him learned he had mine. We passed them back to each other and all was well.

Dave, in 1970, I was at Offutt AFB and had orders to go to Wurstmith to be Crew Chief on KC-135's. I had gotten advanced perdiem for a school in Los Angeles but it was cancelled and they put a little piece of paper in the blue tube saying to debit my pay records at Wurtsmith. That piece of paper disappeared. So Sue me. wink

Your secret is safe with me. Don't tell anyone else, though. You just never know who's listening.

By the way, I note that you posted elsewhere here that you stayed in the aviation field over in Europe. Are you familiar with a airline from long ago International Air Bahamas? It had a route from Nassau to Luxembourg. My father was one of the founders.

Dave Stone Saturday, 25 July 2015 09:13
That last post was from me.

Hello. My name is Jessica and I'm looking for my father.

My mom had a relationship with an USAF African American in the air Base, her name is Veronica. She became pregnant in 92 but does not know his name. I would love to find him.

I was in the 401st Combat Support Group CBPO from Mar 69 thru Aug 72. I forgot to include Wally Reed as the Sax man in the Brothers Band. Also, I would like to recall some fellows who passed away over there. My good friend Herman May, was killed. He was in Supply Admin. Played sports and was well liked. Airman Gay was killed one night walking back to base from Torrejon Village. a car hit the group of people. Some got hurt bad. Peter Newton along with a couple of guys were returning to the base in a convertible MG Midget and the car flipped killing him and 2 others. One young Airman survived. I was asked to go to Madrid that night with them. I chose to stay at the barracks instead. Another friend named Rhodes, who was good friends with Stewart in Supply was hurt bad in a car wreck driving a brand new mini-cooper in the country-side. He was with 2 others GIs. His car hit a mile marker. One man was killed, Rhodes was hurt, and the other survivor walked away, ok. He was the same one that survived the crash that killed Peter and the others. They wrote about him in the base paper. Anyone remember these guys?

I was assigned to the CBPO Reenlistments
and Separations unit from Mar 69 to Aug 72. I played in a Band called The Brothers along with Rick Harris, Eugene Warren, Jim White, Frankie Castillo (Trumpet)and Bobby Washington. We had another Trumpet player and another singer named Bobby. Our sound man was Ray. We recorded the Original Funky Paella and Brothers Groove under Columbia Studios Label. We travelled from the north to the south of Spain. I miss the times and the friends I made there. Oh, we also played as the warmup band for the Bob Hope USO Show in the hangar.Such a blessing having shared your experiences in Spain and TAB.
