Comment: I really enjoyed seeing the picture of Jake Tuckerman in Gallery 4. I had the outstanding opportunity to work for Mr. Tuckerman in 1984 in the Leased Line office at Elmendorf AFB, AK. 

It was an absolute honor to nominate him for the Elmendorf "Messiest Desk of the Year" award! He was absolutely one of the sharpests individuals, and kindest, that I've ever had the opportunity of working for.

Comment: I see references to Charlie Moon at Bear Creek, is this the same Charlie Moon from GMT that was the son of the original Moon as in Moon & Baldwin that started somewhere in the early 1900's. Charlie was sixty plus years old when I knew him there in 1969. 

Cheers...

Comment: Really enjoy the site. I was a relief site medic at Fire Island, Sparrevohn (both top and bottom), NorthEast Cape, Cape Romanzof, Tin City, and Indian Mountain (Top Camp) in 66 and 67. I would give limited medical help to the White Alice guys as requested, (aspirin, cough meds, etc.) as the military really frowned upon us treating civilians.

Comment: I worked at Sparrevohn, Yakataga, and Adak 1969 and 1970 and then returned for a few months at Sheyma in 1977. From 1970 to 1977 I worked for RCA in Anchorage at the toll center, then to Kenai for a couple of years and then worked the pipeline job for about a year and a half. If anyone knows the where abouts of Bob Oats I would really appreciate that information. I worked with him at Yakataga in the summer of 1969 and I know he spent many years at that site and then I lost track of him.

Comment: What a great website! It's such a learning experience for those of us who never heard of WACS. You have so much info here, the stories and pixs really help tell what life was like at these sites. It also tells of many of our country's best! - people who engineered, constructed, operated and maintained this colossal communications system. The sites were true monuments to the men and women whose courage and bravery kept the 'light on' at these remote and (sometimes) hostile locations. Thnx-al

Comment: Wow! What great memories fall forth. I really love all the memories. Great site! I worked SVW 7/70 to 7/73, Transferred to PHQ, worked in QA for Larry Gaddy. Spent about 3 months at Nikolski in, I believe '75, closing out the site, to turn it over to RCA. I would give anything to be able to go back to SVW, just to see what is left. Hi and good luck to all. Walt
