Comment: thanks for the site. It answered a lot of questions (especially the name white alice). Someone told me and I wonder if it is true, that the white alice technology is the form of detection best suited to detecting our new stealth fighters?

Comment: Was stationed at Indian Mountain Base Camp from June 1952 until June 1953. Was a Radio Operator. The radar site was just starting to be built up on the mountain. Guess I was there about the second year after that site came into being. Drew overseas pay and played poker using real silver dollars as poker chips. Don't know if anyone is still around from that time period.

Comment: It is hard to believe that it took me so long to find this site! I trained in Bear Creek early in 1968, then was sent out to Adak. From there I went to Shemya, the following year to Cape Yakataga. I have fond memories, see lots of familiar names. Did anyone ever locate Bob Oates?

Comment: I worked for Western Electric during the era when White Alice, the DEW line and SOSUS were built. I worked on SOSUS but I knew a few of the engineers and installers who were involved with the construction of White Alice. I spent 2 years on Adak with SOSUS, right under the hill where White Alice sat. There is nothing there now except a hill with a flat top. 

The Reeve Cold Bay terminal sign brings back memories but it doesn't look right without the mist and fog swirling around it.

Comment: Just recently found this website and I am very glad to see it. It is sad to see the many friends and co-workers that have passed on. I was on Shemya, Adak, Lisburne, Port Moller, Port Heiden, Bethel, Anchorage ACS, Performance Control and finally at the C&E Depot. Not necessarily in that order. I was in John McGraws class in '62. I left Alaska in 1976. I can say without a doubt that it was the best time of my life. I looked up Joe Tardy in 2002. Lots of memories.

Comment: What sad news of John McGraw's passing... I was privileged back in the 60's to have him as my sector manager for a year while I was Supervisor at Shemya... John was one of the nicest men I ever knew and and a great guy to work for.. I'm sure he will be remembered favorably by many who worked with him over the years... To all his family and friends we share in their terrible loss... God be with you, John ...

Comment: Hi. This is our "monster" scare at CZF in the winter months of 66/67. 
While watching - engrossed - "The Thing" in our lounge, one of our windows SMASHED into a zillion pieces! The movie stopped. A few of us stepped into the snow. RIght away, we saw HUGE, DEEP depressions separated by at least 10 feet! (Was so cold that ice formed on our 
pistols!) 
Cause: the "monster": a fox chased a lemming into then out from that broken window!

Comment: Hi! Great site! I was a site rep B at CZF, Cape Romazoff from July '66 to June '67. I did spend the 30 day training at SPV (Spearvonne) (SP?), too. I have - or had - a whole bunch of pics on another web site; I had them put on, I think around 2002 or 2003 or so. I will see if I can locate it on the web and give a url line. 
I have a true story but will have to use another posting for it. Hope to hear from anyone - and anyone who was at the site around that time. thanks! Ted Ward
