about a 45 minute drive down from Bellefontaine, OH.
  There are now 4 very large hanger plus the rocket display
area
with a fifth hanger now under construction. It seems
that they do not have enough room for all of the planes!

Above is the Radar Site on the East end of the Dauphin Island taken from a 1962 postcard which is shown in full size.  Should anyone have a better copy of this card - please contact me to arrange getting a new scan of it for inclusion here.

The enlarged area shown below is of the eastern end of Dauphin Island.  You can see both Fort Gaines (Established in 1821) at the tip on the water line and adjacent to it, the 693rd Radar Squadron as it appeared in 1962.

These two pictures are from a 6 X 9 inch postcard published in 1962.  The distributor was Dexter, Inc., and the card or print number is 30361-B ~ PH68535.  Published by Thigpen Photocolor, Inc., 163 State Street, Mobile, Alabama.

 The caption on the back of the post card reads:
"Fleecy White Clouds hover over Dauphin Island Resort Center
of the Alabama Gulf Coast"
.

Remember when this hung on the dining room wall!  


One of the many emblems over the years.

 
Remember this dining room tray?

Guess what ! David presented it to the
Dining Room Manager for display.


This tray was donated to our group of Airman and it was then placed in a shadowbox.
We then presented it to the Dinning Hall Manager for display on the wall &
it should be in place in about a week. If you are on the island - stop by and see
it and the new dinning room ! You can also stay for a meal as well if you like.
