A simple Google query led me to a Wikipedia site that said in part that this base was named for a Sumpter county native that was killed in ww1.

I was in 837 combat support group (fuel supply 837 supply squadron) 1961-63. Also assigned air police augmentee. Later I was told all of us in 837th during the Cuban crisis were to get presidential unit citation. During the Cuban crisis I STOOD guard 12 on 12 off. Because all fuel supply personnel had top secret clearance and flight line badges they chose us for air police augmentees. Would love to hear from any POL people from those years.

My father was stationed at Shaw AFB in 1963 with the 837 Combat Support Group (TAC) He recently passed and I am looking for any patches or insignia that might be associated with the 837th so I can put with his display case. Any one with info please post. Thanks

I was assigned to the 727th AC&W Sqdn at Myrtle Beach AFB, SC in January 1961, and served there until August 1963. I have many good memories from that period. I served with some great people including A1C Joel Perdue (from Georgia), who went on to become an officer in the USAF. I also served with Master SGT Pimentel from the Phillipines, A2C Ronald Rowe from Illinois, and A2C Bill Ford from Missouri. I enjoyed working with them.

Volpachinni was the ground crew member that was flying with Capt Femmer. It was a sad day. Did you know Volp flipped with another ground crew member to fly on that aircraft? I was stationed there and in the sq from 1954 for about two years. The name is probably spelled wrong.
