Just found this website aftering searching for the name of the county in Utah where I was born. I was born at the Air Force Base in Wendover, Utah
found out the county is Tooele.
My Dad (a career man) always did top secret work as far back as I can remember. He would leave & Mom would say she didn't even know where he went or
when he'd be back.
I was less than a year old when he was transferred (1946) to Roswell & must of been at that base a few years since my 2 brother where born there in
Mar 1947 & May 1949. Daddy was a bombedier (where is spell check when I need it)? Somewhere I remember Daddy leaving for or coming back from the
Korea war. All I remeber is a huge air plane on a runway & the bright orange sun coming up just above the tarmack.
By the time I was about to start kindergarten we were on a base briefly in Sacremento & then ended up at TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE also in California. I
remeber always being at or seeing SAC signs everywhere. After he retired in 1957 ot 1958 we lived in Concord, CA & he worked at Areojet General in
Walnut Creek, CA.
There has been a slow smoldering in my gut ever since I was 10 or 11 wondering why Daddy was never there to help Mom.
Can anyone point this newbie in the right direction to start a proper trhead about the subject?
Thanks in advance, Daddyslittle girl on the Gulf Coast
