... Sleep Well, Your Air Force Is Standing Guard ...

We "Cold Warriors" were always able to have a good time, sometimes, as some of these photos & notes attest to, in a bizarre fashion. The folks in these photos will probably be suitably embarrassed to show these to their grandchildren.

From the late '50s, here is a gang of Radar Maintenace types after a night on the city.

"Horsing Around in the NCO Club".

Bill Kickert sent the photo and this note:

The horse (I think it was called "old red") belonged to Larry Erickson, a local rancher (farmer :-) ), it was fairly late in the evening and Larry liked to stop in the club for a "toddy". On this occasion he happened to have his horse outside in a trailer so we dared him to bring it in the club. You didn't give a dare to Larry. Well you see the results, the horse also left his "calling card" behind. I don't recall the name of the couple in the picture. Jim Riggle (a civilian employee) took the picture, had it enlarged, and gave a copy to everyone present. I believe for a long time a copy of the picture hung behind the bar.
