On the North Side of the Base

On the North Side of the Base

George Air Force Base

I think this housing area, which seems mighty difficult to reach, is used for National Guard and Reservist training in urban warfare. For that reason I have not felt compelled to wander up there!

SO many memories. Lived there in the late 60's. Dad, Buford Alley, was airforce for 20 years. Broke my leg at 3 or 4 years old. Base hospital not equipped, so had to go to hospital way far away for traction. Used to go door to door introducing myself to women and saying "Hi, my name is Andy. You're so pretty. Got any cookies"? Even at that young age I was flirting. Worked well until, at different times, these women would see me with my mom and tell her how sweet and cute I was, and how I met them. BUSTED! It's not as cute at 47. Great childhood growing up military.

This was active duty housing in 1980 to 84 I moved into one in 1983. I think it was the 3rd on from the left. I was one of the first women to work on the flight line. Funny, the way things change.

That looks like it could be the rear of Mass. Circle that area had all the two story homes for people with large families.

I think that was our housing area. It's strange to think of a place that was one of my childhood homes, so safe and secure is now a ghost town. What a waste. Thanks for your pictures!
