Yea. Did you see that? They were the only one capable of having nuclear weapons back in those days. I didn't know that.
When I was stationed there, we had B47s, B36s and B52s. (If my memory serves.)
During the 18 months or so that I was stationed there, I belonged to the Roswell little theater group, and we sponsored the state's Miss Beauty Pageant. That was fun. Never acted but did everything else including making the scenery.
One of the happiest day of my life was when I rode the bus off the base for the last time. It was freedom at last.
It was the first base ready for the atomic bomb.
