    1955-1958, I served in the 67th ARS. We had 2 H-19 and several SC-54Ds Also later SA-16 sea planes. My name is Charles Cummings
    I was a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service and flew to Iceland with 67 ARRS for snow and ice training. We also went to the top of the glacier and back in record time. Hamilton Anderson
    1983-1985, I was in the 67th ARRS at RAF Woodbridge (Woody) in the sheetmetal shop. I also worked on the HC-130s deployed to Keflavik Iceland in 89 while I was stationed there (also the H-3s there) Was also stationed at Woodbridge in 90-92 when the same aircraft were in the SOS squadrons. Deployed to Desert Shield / Storm, Operation Provide Comfort, and Northern Watch with the SOS squadrons. Still remember the tail numbers of the helicopters and 130s. Loved it at the "country club" as we called it. Much better than being at Bentwaters! TSGT Dennis Reed Harrell retired.
    Mar84-Mar85, I was attached to the maintenance unit of Detachment 14, 67th ARRS, Kéflavìk NS, Iceland. Worked on 3 HH-3C's (don't recall the tail numbers, but I believe they were sequential. Possibly 215/216/217, but time plays tricks on my memory). If it's possible, I need to find unit records from that time.
