AMMS Alumni Home Page

This website is dedicated to the men and women assigned the Airborne Missile Maintenance Squadron in the Strategic Air Command.  They maintained the GAM-77/AGM-28 Hound Dog Missiles, GAM-72/ADM-20 Quail Missiles, and AQM-34 Firebee Missiles used to protect our nation during the Cold War.  I would like to thank everyone that has contributed photographs, materials and money to them maintenance of this website.  And a special thank you to Tom Dillion for twisting the arms of everyone at the reunions to collect funds to defray the cost of operating the website and newsletter.  All of your contributions are greatly appreciated.  Thank You!

Ronald Sortor, Webmaster
