    • Hi George,

      The photo was definitely taken at Toul Rosieres. It had to be in the winter of ’64 since Rube left Toul in January of ’65. He was a great PIC to fly with and is greatly missed.

    I arrived at Toul-Rosieres AB, France in Jan, 1964. I was assigned to the 42nd. TRS, with Autery as commander. This means that the photo probably was taken either on the ramp, or at the ECHO alert pad at Toul Rosieres . The trees in the background don’t look familiar, but the people are. I’ve seen General Autery (now deceased)and Dahl at B-66 reunions and all are on the roster of the B-66 Destroyer Association. Contact Vern Luke at the following email for more information about the association or the contacts: vern.claire.luke@eyesonthefuture.com

    Sincerely, Tom Berkey, Navigator, B-66, 42nd TRS, Toul-Rosieres Jan 64 to Oct. 66.
