Bill Allen is trying to get information about an incident which he has reason to understand took
place between 1964 and 1966 involving a KC-97 aircraft and a ground crew member who was pre-flighting the
aircraft when he inadvertently backed into the propeller killing him instantly. Bill is hoping to jog the
memories of the members to see if they could help him with this. All Bill needs is confirmation that the
incident took place. He does not need any personal information about the incident.
Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

Anyone who has checked the site could have noticed that there has been a lack of activity posted for this month (September 2010).
It's not because there hasn't been Westover CDS veterans sending in their information. It is because your webmaster (me)
has had a run of ill health and lets leave it at that. I will do my best to get back into the swing of things as soon as
possible but don't hold your breath.

More information on the 814th CDS being recognized as the best Combat Defense Squadron in SAC, November 19th 1964.
On May 5th 2010 I received a response from the Air Force Historical Research Agency regarding my request to ascertain
if they have any records regarding the receipt of a request from the 814th requesting the Squadron be considered for a OUC
(Outstanding Unit Citation) based upon the Squadron being recognizes as the best Combat Defense Squadron in SAC.
If you read the memorandum associated with the naming of the Squadron by the Squadron Commander the last few lines of his
memo states that he had directed the squadron to begin the paper work on requesting a OCU. My inquiry to the Air Force
Historical Research Agency was to determine if they had received any such request and if they did, why was it turned down.
The response, after 7 months of waiting was short and sweet. I quote in part ..... "Unfortunately, no evidence of a package
being submitted for the 814th CDS to receive the OUC can be found in our archive......"
I wish I had better news.

††††† I wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind words and wishes for a speedy and healthy recovery from the surgery I had back in February. My estimate as to how long I would be away from the site was just slightly optimistic. It has been closer to two to three months not two to three weeks. In any event, I have been cleared by the medical folks to spend some much needed time at the computer getting caught up on whatís been going on. We have received messages from four past members and they will be added to the members list as soon as I can find and gather the information they sent in. Lets all say ciao to: Robert M. Riggs, Jack Havranek, William H. Mueller and Thomas R. Euker. Iíll get them up as soon as I can on the listing of past members who have found the site and sent in their information.
A reminder to all folks who said they would look around for photos, Squadron memos, duty rosters and pertinent information. My computer is working again, my email is working Iím sitting her waiting, so lets get with it.
††††† As most of you know, this site is a one person operation. Unfortunately this one person will be going in for surgery on Tuesday February 3rd, 2009. I expect to be out of service for about two to three weeks. My wife will keep checking the mail and will let me know when and if something comes up. I fully expect to be back at the computer before the end of the month. Take care, keep looking for those photos, Squadron documents and try to remember where you stashed the duty roster that you took down from the Bulletin Board. See you on the flip side:
Your Webmaster, Alan Hayes - USAF Prior Service 1958 - 1962 814th CDS Westover AFB (SAC).
