Assigned to 410 OMS from 9/66 to 3/70 as a B-52 crew chief. Winters were tough but still loved every minute while stationed there. Alert duty was the bomb. I havent been back to Sawyer since 1972, but plan a trip there soon just to see all the sad changes. Great times with great people. Thanks K.I.S. for the memories.

I transferred to Sawyer in March of 60 to the Missile Branch of the SAGE and worked with Major Guftafson and Captain Engle. I lived off base in New Swanzy and opened a Radio & TV sales and service business across from the IGA store We sponsored the late movie on WLUC TV. The one and only TV station then to watch. I remember one winter when we had a long stretch of -35 weather and how when it reached -17 it actually felt warmer. I wish I could remember more names of the people that I worked with but time has taken its toll on that. Any one that wishes to contact me is invited.

Lived at KI from 1964 thru 1977, My Dad Pete Peteron worked at the SAGE building and wrote the base cartoon \" Max OJT\" it was kinda like a Sad Sack cartoon . He Retired in 71 and worked civil service in the motor pool til 77. Dad was the Bset kinda guy , I lost him in 2005. He was also an avid hunter, fisherman and a Great Golfer. I grew up there and LOVED it. I miss it alot. Will move back there soon....

I was stationed at KI from 4/61 to 9/64 as an MG13 AWCS tech with the 62nd FIS. Many fond memories of KI (regardless of the harsh, long winters) and the people I worked with and met there. Have been back to the UP several times and did return to visit the base several years ago.

I was born at the base hospital in 1963. Is the hospital still there?
