I was a maintenance crew chief on the Atlas E from 62-65. My crew worked at all the Atlas E sites and I remember well the smell of the stockyards. I will be going through Greeley sometime in September on my way to Florida from Portland OR for a visit to my son but I don't know if the date will coincide with the open house. If I can't make it happen I will at least drive by.

Bob,

Just saw your post. The open House is Saturday September 14th 1300 to 1600 and all we have as tour guides are Atlas-D MMTs, MEMs & Launch Guidance . Can you help us? We need a Atlas-E- Missilier.
Where were you stationed?

As a guest we might also have some current members of the 90th Missile Wing at FE Warren.

Please contact me at AtlasD@comcast.net.

I might also mention that I was at Johnston Island with the Thor in '70. At that time I was computer maintenance and part of the launch crew. I was there for 9 months on TDY from Vandenberg in CA. The shots were R&D. The target was the ocean near Kwajalien (sp).
