Remarks: I was an Army photographer assigned to the 30th Arty Bge missile unit on Okinawa in 1970-71. They weren't supposed to have a photographer and had set up a photo lab in a nuclear decontamination chamber to an underground bunker called The Mole Hole. Does anyone remember that lab in The Mole Hole? Do you remember having any decontamination chambers on your missile sites? The whole story is on Magic-City-News.com under DR Crews which is accessed on the lower left column, look for The Illegality and Immorality of My Assighnment As An Army Photographer For The 30th Artillery Brigade on Okinawa....

Name: Arnold "Lee" Bice
EmailAddress: alejbice@netzero.net
Remarks: As far as the MOS goes Iam pretty sure I was a 250 but i woked in supply. I made frequent trips to Seoul for supplies. When I returned to the States I was supposed to be released but "they" said I had too much time remaining so they sent me to a Radio Controlled Aerial Target (RCAT) Unit at Fort Bliss Texas. They changed my MOS to truck driver and sent me all over White Sands looking for RCATs that were not destroyed in their missile practice. That was in February and I was finally mustered out in May. Truly yours, Lee Bice.

Remarks: I served at ft Shafter (89th) from March 64 to Oct 65 and it was called GMMS then for what its worth. Some where I wrote a bit about this, but haven't seen it since then. Did it get lost or is there a lag ? Sure brings back a lot of memories. What is amazing is how niave I was back then ( and uninformed) The security adage was "on a need to know basis" and it worked, as I had no Idea how many sites there were. I really never thought about it but only knew of there being sites in Okinawa, Korea, Alaska, Ft Bliss and Sandia NM. Yet I recall seeing the antennae at various locations stateside(Mainland). Just never thought about it. Not bragging, but I was good at fixing tracking components (radars and van components) but I hated the test console back at the shop. There was a guy, Pask, who was patient, and liked the console. When I got there, there was a guy who was the hot shot site guy, he shipped out, and it became my title for a bit, then I mustered, and someone else got the title - cool huh! Roger

As usual, rumer control is abundant here so I'd thought I'd research and get info for my kids and subordinate soldiers when they ask about it.

Remarks: Am looking for info on former site near St Bonifacius, Minnesota. When site deactivated, we recieved a training missle, which is on display in our city park as a memorial to all those who served at this site. As President of our local Historical Society, I would like to find out more info on this particular site to preserve for future use. Is there a list of those who served at the site? Was friends with many of those one the base, as they often visited and supported out store in St Bonifacius. They delivered the missle to our store in a cold winter blizzard with a duece and 1/2 with a plow. People in town were wandering what I was doing with a missle in my back yard. Today it stands proudly in our city park, and the tip, which I believe was told, was a heat seaking device, sits on my desk. If any info, or know where we could get more info, please advise. Also I was given a medal from one of the folks at the site. It is in the shape of a bullet, red decorations on top, and blue fin like decorations on the side. On the bottom is printed L O L A M Y. What is the name of this medal, and what do the letters stand for? Thanks for any assistance. Tom Logelin 8708 Park Ave St Bonifacius, Minnesota 55375.

Remarks: If you have/need memories reference Nike sites on Hawaii around 63 to 65, my old mind might have some memories still in place. I worked in 89th Ord as a Nike Track Radar Repairman in support of the sites around the island for a year and a half. We would pick up workorders at the shop each day and along with a 250 helper, head out to a site most days to effect repairs. We had one site on the east side that had a bad sim track problem and when I told my then Sgt that the base was messed up, he said "you want me to tell the Engineers that??" Well within weeks the site was the first one to get a MWO (Modification Work Order) where they sent in a special team to jack the antenna up, lift the base ring, clean out the corrosion, treat the surface, and reseat the base ring. Turns out the sea air was eating up the base metal and distorting the level. I've got more war stories if you are interested? Any chance of getting my name and e-mail on the 89th Ord list in case someone else out there is interested? Roger Bienvenu (SP5) 89th Ord Detachment, USAHAW (surryroger@msn.com) thanks,,, Roger
