This Website is dedicated to the Airmen and Officers who served at Murphy Dome in 1956 and 1957.
For most it was a unique & one of a kind "Semi-Remote"15 Month Tour of Duty.
Amazingly my appeal to the AIG [Air Inspector General] resulted in the tour being reduced to 12 months in 1958 like the other remote AC&W sites. S/Sgt John Falk
