I was posted to Speing Island LORAN Station in 1976-1978 as a Radio Operator. I was single and age 20-22. Iā€™m looking for more pictures and stories from people that were posted there, for the possibility of writing a memoir. Thank you! Lana

Kargabarun, Turkey Mar ā€˜73 - Mar ā€˜74. Looking through this site brought back many great memories. The base was on the beautiful coast of the Sea of Marmara several hours east of Istanbul. We had the best cook on the planet! Also, the local food was fabulous. I can still smell and taste the freshly baked bread in the local towns. Thanks to the USCG for the incredible experience!

Hello, I just wanted to say, my Father worked for Holmes and Narver from 1953 -1958 as a civilian welder during the nuclear testings. Seeing these pictures really tug at my heart. Dad has been gone since 1981. Thank you very much.

Was @ Wake in 1974-1965 installing the USAF version of the VORTAC, replacing the FAA model RTC-1. Fillipinos were techs at that time and there was an elderly ham radio op there, I think his call sign was KW6HF...can anybody confirm that? I do not know his name. History off at JB Elemendof checked history files and says no hams found, but I know he was there cause he made phone patch for me to my sweetheart in Virgina, anyone remember?
