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.

 

My appeal to the AIG [Air Inspector General] resulted in the tour being reduced to12 months in 1958 like the other remote AC&W sites. John
