I was stationed on Midway from December, 1959 through August, 1961. I was assigned to Special Services, and managed the base theater and bowling alley. This was a memorable assignment for me, and I often recall the laid-back lifestyle I enjoyed while there. I was fortunate to have my wife and young daughter accompanying me during most of my assignment on the “Island just this side of tomorrow.”
I was stationed on Midway for 18 months late 1960 to April 1962. I was working there as an electronic technician maintaining the early warning radar & radio equipment installed in the WV-2 aircraft. Flew as Aviation Electronics Tech on those planes, it was a wonderful experience.
Hi Garne! I don’t know if you’ll see this but on the off chance you do… Do you happen to remember the Atwells (John, Greta, Billy, and Zelma) who were also there from ’58-’61?
I was stationed there from 1971 to 1974 as part of the GEMD division of the air-ops department. Spent a lot of time in the large ray dome on the roof of the main hanger building.
