My father Robert Midder was stationed at TAB from 1966-Jun 1970, he was assisgned to the Fire Department/Rescue, and I know he enjoyed being at Torrejon as much as his family. February 16, 2007 he passed.
I married Sgt Charlie Braziel, with 401st Supply, he arrived in 67 and we departed Spain in 1974.
Those were the best days in our lives, and that is one tour we will never forget. It was a feeling of family forever.

I definitely remember Charlie B. I was stationed at TJ from May 68 to Dec 77, and then again from Feb 81 to Jul 87. It was the best assignment in the Air Force. Charlie B and I played intramural basketball together on the 401st Supply Squadron team. I also played on the base basketball team, and was a member of the 1974/75 Torrejon USAFE Championship team. We also spent a lot of fun times playing pinnacle at Pinky's with Hawk and Chaney. I eventually retired from the Air Force in 1993 (26 years) and I'm now living in Phoenix, AZ. I'd love to hear from Charlie B.

I was stationed at TJ from 83 to 86. I played in a band called Tyrant, with Steve Brown, Dennis Thompson, Mark Duffy and Bernie. We played in Zarragoza a couple of time and in Turkey once. Played NCO clud and several other functions around base. If anyone remembers please respond. Thanks Steve. I was in the 614th then promoted to lead crew. I remember Lee and Tony.

Steve Heywood Wednesday, 2 January 2013 23:18
I remember Tyrant. Think I caught y'all at the NCO club once or twice. I was stationed at TJ from '84 to '87.

William Johnson Tuesday, 26 March 2013 11:17
Yea, I remember the band. I was stationed at TJ from 1982 - 1986, AMMO, Line Delivery and CASA Control.

Tracey Alexander Saturday, 2 August 2014 23:43

If anyone remembers a white Seat 850 with the roof cut off - it was mine cool

Dave Wehlermann Wednesday, 29 April 2015 10:11
Assigned to the post office from 83-86. Was this the band that Talia Green was the singer? Saw lots of good bands and had a great time in TJ.

[b][b]1620th Support Sq. MATS. (Maintenance).
Feb 1960 to Dec 1961.
Just learned that my old boss John Anderegg passed away. A great guy.
I partied with Ralph Gaines, Ollie Fleming,Calise David, Ralph Waite,Clyde Barr,POGO from the base Gym. Dated the ladies and married one 50 years ago. Still married. Will visit Madrid soon. We go often. Love to hear from any old MATS guys. I am on facebook.

Dirk den Hartog Tuesday, 18 December 2012 01:12
Hi Walter,

I was in 1620 Mats from Mar 65- Apr 68

Best of times.

Walter Baade Tuesday, 18 December 2012 12:05
<strong>Best assignment ever. The Squadron was comprised of many different sections. We all knew each other and partied for a nickle a beer. I bought a new VW Bug for $1000.00 CubaLibres were 25cents. Pepe's had good food. Hung out at Bar Kenya in Madrid. Always 1620th people there. (Kenya is gone now) The Balboa is still there and is a 5 Star hotel.I was pissed when the shipped me to Morroco with less than 2 years completed on my 3 yr tour at Madrid. Madrid has changed a lot but the people are still very nice. </strong>

Dirk den Hartog Thursday, 20 December 2012 03:26

Yes, I have been back to Madrid a few times when I was flying (retired flight engineer) civilian, did 10 years in USAF and made my break. Retired now living in the Netherlands where I was born. Have worked all over Europe and a civilian and haven't lived in the USA since 1989. I was also in maintenance at 1620 MATS (625th MASS). Remember the stack checks on Shakeys??

I spent more time in Madrid then I ever did on base when not working.

Yep, Balboa is still there. My favourite club was Club 42 in central Madrid. I found it one night when exploring the back streets. Kept it secret from other GI's. Fantastic club underground.
Also La MalMaison, by the Plaza de Espana. Drank a few times with Broderick Crawford who used to hang out there.

Good times.

Walter Baade Thursday, 20 December 2012 21:11
Going back in April. Will make a side trip to Rome or Paris. I was in Copenhagen last year for a cruise. Spent 2 days there. Is laMal Maison still there? Sounds like a nice place.[b][/b]

Walter Baade Saturday, 22 December 2012 11:19
OH Yes..I remember the stack checks on Shakeys. I did thousands of them. I was a "Run-up" man for C 124, C 123, C 118 and the C-54. I could change a Mag and run up the engine in 30 minutes flat. I wanted to be a Flight Engineer but you had to be a SSGT or above to apply. So I became a Loadmaster as it turned out. I loved the Loadmaster field and did very well in it. Been retired from the Air Force for 30 years now. Time flys.

Dirk den Hartog Sunday, 23 December 2012 04:46

Mag change in 30 minutes? you are the man, on the 4360? How about those jug changes? smile I was skinny then and used to be sent into the wing and and to the accessory section to tweak things during runup. I got written up by a SAC guy because I went into the chow hall with oily fatigues. 1620 Commander told the guy to take a hike. We WORKED for a living. hahah

Dirk den Hartog Sunday, 23 December 2012 04:54
Remember Wheelus AB, Libya? Well, mylast flying gig as FE was on VIP DC-8's contracted to Ghaddaffi and we were based there. Wheelus is now called Mitiga AB. At least it was in 2003 when we were flying out of there. Who knows since NATO destroyed it. Still have Libyan friends who are wishing Ghaddaffi was back. I had NO problems there whatsover and people were laid back. I hate politic and BS lies of the US govt. I have seen enough in my lifetime.

Walter Baade Tuesday, 25 December 2012 21:51
I was TDY to Wheelus many times. Biggest Flies I've ever seen.
I was spoiled in Spain. I don't miss any of the other 105 countries that I flew through. Get back to Madrid once a year or so. Love that PLACE.

My name is Mike Bialecki and I was stationed at Torrejon AB, Spain from 1987-1989 and was part of the Medical Group as a Medical Logistics tech. I mainly worked with the mobility side of things, such as the ATH/ATC, as well as Blood Transhipment Center. I left TJ and went to Avon Park AF Range FL (Yes, active duty were there) from 1989-1991, then Ramstein AB, Germany from 1991-1994. From there I went to McClellan AFB CA from 1994-1996 where I got out. In 2009 I came back in with the Air Guard and I'm currently assigned to the 199th Weather Flight (A far cry from Medical Logistics).

Steve Heywood Monday, 7 January 2013 02:04
I probably missed you at TJ as I left in May of '87. Had a buddy of mine assigned to Avon Park from TJ though, he was there from about '85 to '88. I was a weather troop my whole career and I can vouch for weather being a far cry from pretty much anything. Enjoy Hawaii!

Tom "OB" O'Brien Thursday, 6 June 2013 19:24
Mike, do you remember Paul Brown? He worked in hospital logistics...or Ron Craddock in the Dental Lab?

I was stationed at TAB from 1975 to 1978 and worked at the CBPO. My husband (Perry) was the only "dependent" husband at the time. He helped found a softball team who called themselves The Orphans and was made up of mostly airmen from the CBPO. (Perry died in May 1991.)

Mike Gaines Tuesday, 11 December 2012 06:58
Angela, what Section of the CBPO did you work in? I was in Personnel Readiness and it's been so long, I don't remember you or Perry. I did play a lot of softball while I was there.

Angela Butcher Monday, 17 December 2012 21:26
I "sort of remember" you. I worked in the Records section for the longest time (MSgt Buckley was the NCOIC there then it became Jack Leftwich)... then moved to Officer Performance Reports (worked with Penny Cudd there). I remember when I'd go do the processing for TDY people during "alerts" there was a kind-of tall blonde guy and it seems like his name was Mike? I don't remember you from actually IN the CBPO... just during processing in the hangar. Richard Fielding playing on the softball team with Perry.

Mike Gaines Tuesday, 18 December 2012 12:04
Wow! You got a good memory. Yup, that was me. Tall 6\'2\", skinny, blonde. I still have a little hair left, a lot fatter and may have shrunk an inch or two. ha nice talking to ya...

Mike Gaines Friday, 21 December 2012 14:38
Must have be another Mike Gaines, I never got it.

Angela Butcher Friday, 21 December 2012 22:59
Okay. I just sent one to the only Mike Gaines it shows in Fishers Indiana. I have to mention FB recently made a change. In order to see msg's from ppl who are not a friend you have to go to the MESSAGES link... then at the top click on OTHER. That's where you'll find msg's from ppl that aren't on your list and FB doesn't let you know there are any there for you.

I was there Nov 75 to May 78 Did you Know anyone in civil engineers? My name is John Reitz and I worked in the LFM shop of CE

I was stationed at Torrejon between 1969 to 1974 with my family.

It wss the best time in our lives! Great memories with everyone we met: The Miles, The Williams, The Adcocks(sp?), The Johnsons, The Bennetts, The Bergins. We hooked up again with The Miles and Aswegans but lost everyone else.
Just wondering if anyone out there remembers The Bonnafons during '69 and '74?

I was stationed at Torrejon Air Base from April 1986 to May 1989. I was Medical Administration and worked in the base hospital. I ran the Aeromedical Evacuation Office for half my time and the other have worked in Medical Plans and Readiness. I remember taking great tours out of the rec center. After leaving Torrejon went to RAF Fairford and then RAF Lakenheath. Got off Active duty in 1992 then went into the reserves at March Air Force Base, now called March Air Reserve Base and retired from the reserves in 2003 as a TSgt. I currently live in Chatsworth, CA which is just north of Los Angeles.

Michael Bialecki Friday, 7 December 2012 11:14
Wow! I remember you Mike, when you worked at the Evac Office. I was in Medical Logistics (Part of the WRM team) mainly working with the mobility packages.

Charles McCool, my husband, MMS Squadron, was stationed at Torrejon AFB from 1963 - 1965. Would love to hear from anyone in the squadron at that time. I was fortunate enough to make many friends in the time that I was there.
