Just got onto this website through Russ Reston's email today and noticed I am shown as Missileer of the day. Which day I don't know. I remarried about 8 1/2 years ago (married on Halloween Day 2008. I live with my wife Judy in a 55+ community weat of Portland, Oregon. Spending a lot of time enjoying retirement, golfing and adventuring. We're in the middle of a two-week stay in Carlsbad, CA where my son and family llive. Spent today touring San Diego; had a great time with the temperature 70F. It's been snowing in Portland the last couple of days. Talk with my old launch officer buddies on occasion, Buck Cashiola, Nixon Adams and Jack Chyle. Hope everyone is in

Bill, apparently it was your "lucky" day. The website automatically "picks" a missiler of the day from a list of people known to have served at Sembach. Regards, Russ. ????

I was stationed at Sembach AFB from about July 1963 until September 1966.

I was a part of 38th MMS, and was a flight control specialist.

My wife & I enjoyed much of the Germany visit, but we were both ready to reenter the good ol' USA.

After that, I cross-trained into heavy radar, and went to the new facility inside Cheyenne mountain near Colorado Springs. I also worked at Ent AFB, located inside Colorado Springs. It was only one or two city blocks in physical size.

I did enjoy that assignment. After 45 years, I (and my wife) are still in love with Colorado, and the entire Rocky Mountain area.

You may want to check the TAC Missileers membership list. Some members served at Sembach. http://www.tacmissileers.org/active-members/

ps - I think you meant 38th MMS not 34th MMS.

I was at one of the sites at Sembach, the last night. We worked on a backup missile until midnight, then shut everything down. Spent the next 2-3 months dismanuling and moth balling everything. Had a great time at Sembach.

Thank you for reminding us of the 50th
anniversary of the 38th shutdown. As one of those with Bob Bolton at the gate at Gruenstadt, I will always remember the simultaneous shutdown of all the noise makers and the eerie silence. Even though I spent less than 2 1/2 years in the 38th at Gruenstadt, it has been a major landmark in my life.

My dad, Harry Wilson, was stationed at Sembach from 1978-1981. My brother, sisters, mom, and I were with him. We had some wonderful friends who were our overseas family. My parents are celebrating 50 years of marriage and we are trying to locate James "Jim" Rich and his wife, Sandy, who had Kim and Ginny. If anyone has any idea how to contact them, that would be terrific. My parents think Jim was stationed there 76-80. Thank you for your help.

Colonel Haney's Obituary: Please note his daughter is Michele and his wife is Catherine.


Otto Reed Haney, born 18 September 1916, died May 9, 2016, just months short of his 100th birthday. Col. Haney was born in Waynesville, Missouri to Harry Raymond and Loto Haney. The Missouri farm boy joined the Army Air Corp in 1940 with his first assignment after flight school graduation at Hickam AFB, Hawaii in December, 1941. As WWII broke out that same month, Colonel Haney flew B17s in the battles of the South Pacific including the battle of Midway and Guadalcanal. An amazing 29 year military career followed as this aviator traveled the world becoming the Air Attache in China working with General George Marshall and General Joseph Stillwell as well as Chiang Kai-Shek, to Wing Commander of the 6595th Aerospace Test Wing at Vandenberg AFB, California. Involved early in the United States space program, Colonel Haney oversaw the initial beginnings of space travel and the launching of numerous international payloads. Receiving degrees from the University of Missouri, and George Washington University, diplomas from Industrial College of the Armed Forces and Air War College, and attending Harvard University for the Advanced Management Program, Colonel Haney remained forever an avid learner. After retirement from the Air Force in 1969, Colonel Haney devoted his remaining years as a public servant and volunteer. He negotiated the sale of Roxborough Park to the state of Colorado and championed the development of both the Park and the community which surrounds it.

Colonel Haney leaves behind his wife of 73 years, Catherine Park Haney, his son Reed Park (wife Mary), daughter, Michele, grandchildren Erick Burke (wife Reanna), Reed Haney, John Haney (wife Claudia), Emily Haney, Michael Haney, great grandchildren Oriane, Otto and Orestes Burke as well as nieces, nephews and many, many friends Colonel Haney was the recipient of the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Army Air Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, American Campaign Medal, American Defense Service Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. Colonel Haney was a Command Pilot and an Air Force Master Missile Maintenance officer. Colonel Haney will receive a military burial at Ft. Logan. In lieu of flowers, the family recommends donations in Colonel Haney's name to Wounded Warriors or a charity of choice

Sorry to report the passing of your former Wing Commander Colonel Otto Haney on or about 10 May 2016. He was 99 years old and lived in th Roxborough Park area of Littleton Colorado. His wife Michele survives. His contribution to our service and nation were immense. Perhaps you did not know that following WWII Col Haney was an Air Attache to China and in that role worked with George C. Marshall in attempting to end the civil war between Communist and Nationalist factions. I met him one time at his home and he was a gentleman with an extensive view of the history of the Cold War.

I've "refreshed" the site software and given it an "updated" appearance. Let me know if you encounter any "bugs."

My dad (Ssgt Quentin Davis) was stationed in Sembach from 1960 until 1964 as a missileer. As a matter of fact, both my sister and I were born there during his tour. I come to this website every so often to see his picture as a young man. He loved being in the Air Force. Thanks for keeping his service alive even though he has passed.
