| Carol A Hughes|
| My dad worked at Hayes when he commited sucide I would like to hear from anyone who knew him he worked in sheet metal before he was in the Marines so Im not sure of what exactly his job was. His friends called him Johnny but his name was Ellison Jackson Johnson. His address at the time of his death was 1112 19th St or I found two others from the obituary archives. I found his grave in Forest Hills but It would mean the world to here about him from any of his friends or fellow workers.4234435135 Thanks Carol Johnson Hughes |

| I came to the 622nd as a fresh out of engine school at Shephard AFB in late Summer of 1955 as an airman 3rd class. I was stationed with the 622nd for the rest of my enlistment at England AFB there in Alexandria LA and was an A1C when I was discharged November 11, 1958. Just short of 4 years of service. We had the KB 29s when I got there and later the KB50s.
Lots of hard work done on those big engines. Worked in the engine shop for a year or so. Also on the flight line on an aircraft crew before the engine shop job. Also worked for months on the overhaul docks.
TDY duty to Bermuda, Azores and McConnel AFB CA during the shelling of Tiwan by the Red Chinese that nobody seems to remember????

| My father, James I. Hill, (J.I.)was stationed at England AFB assigned to 622 ARS in the late 50's thru early 60's and was a crew chief. He died in 1993.
I remember attending airshows at the base and loved watching those KB50s flying...also the F-100s.
