Murphy Dome Roster for 1956 & 1957  


(This list was derived from duty rosters, orders, the Radome Roster and input from those who served at Murphy Dome.

Multiple entries indicate change of rank or AFSC or multiple email addresses)

Email additions and corrections to: webmaster  

Thanks to 1/Lt Bill Bennett for additional name information on 8 officers.

Thanks to Dennis Reber for sending a copy of orders reducing the tour from 15 to 12 months for 67 Airmen and Officers on 28 Jan 58. Now I know why the CO had me shipped out with only 1 hours notice when he was informed my letters to the AIG were successful in shortening the tour from 15 to 12 months. Obviously it created a mountain of paperwork and unexpected turnover of personel.  I thought they would just phase in the shorter tour. 

Those 67 are identified with a '<15 mos' in the [On/or*] column
