Hi - My wife and I visited the museum on Sunday and she seems to have lost one of her earrings there. If anyone turns in a jade teardrop type women's earring, would you let us know? Thanks for your help. Bob Songe Oceanside, CA 760.758.3766

I was stationed at March in 1969 when Gen. Jack Catton was there. I was in the AMS squadron barracks and in the basement of that building were some beautiful paintings done by some of the troops there. Sure would like to see some pictures of them, if they still exist.

I was at March from January 1961 until mid 1962 as an AP guarding B-47s in the alert area. Does anyone from that time remember the B-47 that landed gear up on one cold morning in 1961? The aircraft was coming back from a long all night mission and the crew just "neglected" to put down the gear. No one was hurt (a miracle) and there was a minimum of damage to the airplane. I believe the A/C's name was Captain Caseman? I would love to chat with someone who remembers that incident. I saw it happen and the incredible image of that plane coming in with the drogue chute deployed and the wheels up has haunted me for years.

I was stationed at March Field from 1962 to 1965. I started my life at March as a ramp rat. We had B-47's and KC 97's at that time. I remember the day the Cuban Crisis hit and all our birds got airbourne, some had trouble landing, but everything worked out ok. I was a K-9 person also, my dog's name was "STUD" 461F. After the dogs were sent back to Texas for re-assignment to Nam, I went to the Base Police until I separated. I remember the cold nights out around the runway and the nights at WSA. I look back now, some years later, and wonder whatever happened to several people I served with. Doc John Weed from Texas, Larry Mackay, Tom Spragg and so on. I love the museum and go there as much as I can. Thank you

Are there any good Veteran Service Officers (VSO) out there? We think so. In fact, we have a growing directory of VSOs nominated by veterans. These VSOs have demonstrated excellence in helping veterans secure service-connected claims and increase ratings. They return phone calls too. If you need a good VSO in your area visit our web site at http://www.veteranprograms.com. Keep up the good work on this site. As stated previously, we added it to our monthly newsletter as a resource for all veterans. Thanks!
