This page updated on December 1, 2018
More often than not, we get wrapped up in the daily routines of pursuing careers, raising families, and just living life. We may pause from time to time and think to ourselves, "What ever became of...?" We put away those thoughts only to think about them again years later and sometimes, never.
Memories can fade with time. We might remember working with Dennis Jones, for example, only to find out that the person we worked with is actually David Jones. After so many years, the spelling of a first or last name may escape your memory, a home town or state may be forgotten. For this reason it may be helpful to read over some of your old military orders from your records file. If you don't have your personnel records file from the Air Force, you can obtain a copy (assuming it was not destroyed in a fire) from The National Archives, through their Veterans' Records Department in St. Louis, MO. You may (click here) to go directly to their Web Site. Follow their simple instructions and copies of your Air Force records will be mailed to you.
If you are searching for a friend from the 6987th, we invite you to submit your inquiry for posting here on this page. When submitting your inquiry, please provide as much information as possible on the individual including: Name, Hometown, AFSN and AFSC, Dates of Tour(s) and a photo if available. It is possible that someone visiting our site will recognize the face and/or name and respond with positive information. You may e-mail the above information to Webmaster.
While we are not operating a full Locator service, we may be able to provide you with information that will give you a starting point in your search or info that can assist you in furthering or concluding your search. Keep in mind that in order to post an inquiry, you must be listed on our Personnel Roster. You see, someone might just be out there searching for you also.
If you have information on any of the people shown on this page, please e-mail it to the Webmaster and the information will be passed on to the person making the inquiry. We also ask that if you should locate a person whose name appears here, please let us know and we will delete the inquiry. Thank You.
