Hi Joe N. I have been busy, and unable to get back to you in a timely manner. If you go to the home page and click on MILITARY FACILITIES and scroll down to picture #10. This is what East windsor site looked like when I was driven through the main gate. There were 4 radar towers. MTR< TTR< TRR and the Acq. Some time in 1962 there has to major construction done before I arrived in late 1962. If you scroll down to picture # 16 last column you will see that Zeus was built. They were built in 1952.Toward my last year 1965 there was a conversion over to Zeus. The payloads were changed during TPI. BMEWS was already installed.

This is cool. Did I tell you of the abandoned Nike site I explored in Thule Greenland? The missile launcher bays were intact, but the open bays were filled with junk trucks and other debris. Since the weather is mostly cold and dry, things were pretty well preserved.

Are you in the Roster that Tom Chesters submitted?
I wasn't in the roster but Tom can verify the photos and I was there.
Me and Tom were stationed there together. I was there 60 to 62,Tom was there till 63.
So which photos are not the correct Michael B.?

Great site. I was always looking for information on the New Britain niki site as a kid playing hanging out in the remains. Keep the info coming as it helps us younger guys understand what our parents had for challenges in life. Ronnnie
