AIRCOM Members do top notch communication job.


Vol. 9, July 27 1962


By TSgt. H. L. Horton.


"Yes sir", the sergeant said emphatically. "I believe we have the highest morale of any outfit. Large or small, in the Air Force, and" he grinned, "wait until you sink your teeth into some of the fried chicken we're having for dinner." The speaker was SMSgt. Charles D. Bell, from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Thule AIRCOM site manager, with the senior NCO at the wheel of the metro truck. We were bouncing our way to the 1983d Comm. Sq. site on top of N. mountain, some six miles from Thule proper.

"Some folks might say we're isolated being so far from the base" Bell continued, "But with our own mess, living and working area so close together we believe we live better than most people on the Base," He went on to explain that the site had it's own power and heating plant. The Base supplies them with food and water and takes away the waste. The day room has a radio set, tuned to Thule AFRTS, their is also a record player well supplied with the latest records airmen themselves, and Armed Forces Film Library furnaces them wit movies which they run on their own projector whenever they wish. "Even when road is closed by Phase winds or sleep snow, we're entirely self-sufficient" the sergeant continued.
