I was stationed at the Baker Nunn site DET2 18 Surveillance Sqdn 1969 to 70. Also made a couple of stops 71 to 74 as the OPS inspector on the IG team which inspected both the Baker Nunn and Det 1 10ADS the Thor missile unit.My association with JI goes back to 1963 when the Thor program was started but never set foot on the Island until 1969. Always had a warm spot for it and remember many good times and people.Especiaaly the steak every Sat and prime rib every Wed. My wife still nags me about my island vacation while she was at home with 4 kids.Although your site covers later years it was great to revisit the atoll after all these years. Keep up the good work.
