Hello, my name is Douglas Dana...my father was assigned to the 428 TFS at Nellis I believe 68 - 74 as an AGE Mechanic later in 1972 that I believe he was assigned to the 474 TFG Wing Headquarters Building near the NCO Club...my fathers name is Edwin Dana. He is a retired AGE Suprerintendent and lives in Maine. As a dependent we lived off base in a trailer court called Blue Bird and I went to school at J.E. Manch...I remember the days picking my Dad up from work...watching the planes take off and landing...the sound and vibrations under your feet...nothing in the world like that...brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I was at Nellis a couple years ago things have changed a lot. I gave visited the 428 TFS at Mountain Home as well it was an interesting place...nice to see the large Buccaneer Patch again... I had taken a lot of pictures I can share...they train foreign pilots to fly the F-15...interesting. As my father, I too am a Retired USAF Veteran as well and was also stationed at Nellis...I was assigned to the 57th Fighter Weapons Wing/DTSP (Test Support)...I would like to hear from anyone who worked with my father.

Respectfully,
Douglas Dana
