  1. Was on Midway from 1970-1972. Worked at KMTH rado/TV/PAO on 2nd deck of terminal. Lived in barracks next to chow hall. Also, ran the Special Services darkroom and photo shop. Was one of the best duty stations in my 20 years active. Would love to go back there for a visit. Memories, how nice they are.

  2. hello/helpi was on the rock may 69 to june70, was in the AOM crew, logs n records, for the hu-16d’s and uh-34d’s, i was a member of a blog with other personell, due to being hacked i lost that accout or access, there was a ams2 i think first name gary who took lots of pics and was head of the blog group, if you know him or how to be able to rejoin, that would be great.

  3. Was there 63-64. Worked in Air Control Tower as an electronics tech. Also worked in the “receiver station” (radios) in the center of the three runways. Operated the cargo winches and booms on the civilian freighters pulled into port to off load food & supplies. Twice a week I helped work in the ceramic shop for a few extra dollars. After 6 months was flown to Hawaii for a three(3) day liberty, then back for another 6 months , Beautiful island and so many birds. Goodies get all the attention but there was many other species that were beautiful.sad what is happening with all the plastics😢

  4. I was on the island April 1976 to June 1977. I did not think so then, but looking back it was the most memorable 14 months that I have ever spent. A very pleasant memory.

  5. I was in the Air Force on Midway Island for a one yr tour in 1960 to 1961. I was there with 27 others, and I am trying to find a Sgt Duke–
    and Gregery who were there with me. Both gentle men were from
    Hawaii. I am trying to go to Hawaii and would like to look them up, but don’t have the last name. I know it has been a long time, but I figured I would try.
