  • John L & Adele F Wagner: Hawaii. RAF Bentwaters, June 63-Sept 66, when the last combat ready group of fighter pilots in the USAF inventory (about 90 of us stationed in Europe) were sent straight to Vietnam. It seems there was a little bubble in the fighter pilot combat crew training production line and pilots were being rotated out of Vietnam due to number of missions completed faster than replacements were being trained. Hence when we arrived in Sep & Oct, 1966, many squadron's were at half strength. Have participated in 81st FTR WG reunions in Colo Springs, Honolulu and Phoenix. We drove around England last summer and visited RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge. The old tobacco housing is now occupied by locals. 5/1/00

  • *Chuck Wrobel: Minnesota. RAF Bentwaters/ RAF Shepards Grove 1951-Dec 1953. Moved with the 81st from Moses Lake, WA to RAF Bentwaters summer of l951 as a very young, 18 year old, Buck Sargent (then classified as A\4). Served RAF Bentwaters and Shepards Grove in the NCO Clubs and Officers Mess. Discharged December, 1953. Returned to school earning undergraduate and post- graduate degrees at U of Wisconsin and U of Minnesota. Spent my entire post AF career as a High School Teacher, School Administrator and Asst Commissioner. My thoughts of all of the people at these bases is heartwarming. Also, the English, recoiling from the war, were absolutely great. Now that I'm retired, I have both the time and inclination to start getting in touch with any and all of the RAF Bentwaters and Shepards Grove folks. Thank you for your excellent efforts in establishing and maintaining your web page.
