Being behind enough already, I (Ed Thelen) haven't joined and can't view.
Who are "Nike People"? Certainly U.S. Army, National Guard, and military people of other nations who worked at Nike oriented sites, radar centers, service centers, training centers, test and proficiency ranges, and headquarters. I also include civilians who designed, manufactured, serviced, and tested (such as White Sands) Nike equipment and trained Nike people (such as at Ft. Bliss) and help restore Nike sites.
To list yourself
Fillout and send the following form. (Lots of forms - just like any army ;-)
- Military unit designations on foreign soil (not U.S.) are not be from official sources.
- They are as supplied by individuals whose memories may be almost as faded as mine :-((
- Please do not include your training if any at Ft. Bliss - (too much work for me.).
- Please try to use location codes in Locations of Former Nike Sites (text)
- (Example "C-41")
- I ask for location as that is the way this web site is organized.
If you don't even give what country, we will start an unnecessary dialog.
Some folks assume that I know where every unit was at any given day
- wrong - I don't track units, just concrete and people.
(The Army can create/rename units faster than lightning, and move them at jet speed - a lot faster than my mind. Some sites in the U.S. had 5 different Army or National Guard unit designations in 20 years.)
- If you served at more than two locations, send more forms ;-)) just like the Army :-|
- If you have an interesting Nike related story, please consider the stories web page
