    Missiles ready. Thanks for filling and hauling all the sandbags. :) Bunkers/foxholes were pretty well fortified. Seemed like IFC mountain face was pretty bad shelled.

    No I believe a dozer pushed the top off IFC hill so it would be flat on top and a lot of rock went down that side, yes to a lot of sand bags we filled a train load and dug the 50 Cal positions. Wish more A 4 44 folks would get on line here, surely it's not just the two of us.

    Mail Call!

    Yo RickyRadio,

    It takes a while to figure the site out.

    Yell: "Mail Call" and everyone usually shows.

    I knew two guys there in '70 from Philly; Tom Pace- a short guy- worked MP, mostly mail runs to K-6 Camp Humphreys; Tom Smalley - a tall guy- worked launcher sections (we wouldn't let "Smally" get too near a warhead though- eh Steve?) :D

    Were you a MP dog handler, or just barracked up on the hill ?

    Again, I was in first unit to arrive at Camp El Paso, we set it up, Dog handlers had to stay in tent until barricks/pens were finished. No mess hall, no laterine, huts did have diesel heaters. First unit on line did not take to long then spent a lot of time on hill, when we were at 5 min. status/battery it was called "candlepower", I can't remember what 15 minute battery was, "darknight" we had only one or two persons on the hill. Need some folks to comoe on and refresh my memorey.
