I worked for a time at the RTT site. Frome the Comm Center/Stratcom Orderly room, your main Gen back-up was to your to your right and your secondary back-up was at the RTT site. We had to fuel that dirty thing a couple times a day. A Co, 52nd orderly room was across the grass and to the left slightly in the build across from the Dispensiry, My Mail Room "A Co/Stratcom" was in the building next to it. The RTT site was right next to the fence leading to the cemetary. The Supply room/Motor pool building was next to the Carrier bay building. The air field's DTE (Dail Telephone Exchange-for those who don't know) was on the street that led from the barracks to the comm center, I think it was next to it. Looking at some of you picture the large white building on the corner leading to the entrance to the motor pool was the DTE. I pulled Guard there in that 25FT tower plenty of times. We had a guy asleep on the sand bags and he dreamed that a rat ran across his chest and rolled over and fell 25ft to the ground. I tink he broke his leg, but not sure. hope to hear from all of you soon
