I went to ATC "A" school in Glynco in 1963 and loved the base. I remember the WAVES barracks were above the chaplains' office and during the day we were careful not to make too much noise. I loved Glynco, Simons Island and Shoney's. I took my four kids back to Glynco in 75 and found that all of the blimp hangars had been taken down and the base had been given to the U.S. Marshalls. The gate guards let me drive through the base, though, and, sadly, a lot of the places I knew were gone. Still lovely, though. -

I first arrived at NAS Glynco on Jan 1, 1969 after dark, I was checking in after P school in Millington, TN. I saw the lights on top of the Blimp hangers and remember saying to myself,( I didn't know they had small mountains in GA, LOL) I was always amazed at how big they were, and how we had to dodge the pigeon droppings from above.
Spent 2 years there and had some great times out on the flight line as a plane captain on the TS-2A, super connie line.
Thanks for the pictures!

I was stationed at Glynco NAS from Jan-May, 1972 for ATC school. Glynco was my first duty station out of boot camp, and I loved every minute of it. Stayed in the barracks, thumbed rides into town, or begged rides from friends. Disappointed Glynco was closed, but not surprised. The Air Traffic Control school was about all that was happening during my stay.
Glad to see some pictures to remember some good days of the past!

I was stationed at Glenco in the Fall of 1964. I worked in the drafting department while I waited for my school (Photographers Mate) to start in Pensacola, FL. It was my first time away from home and the main thing I remember about it was the smell of the wood pulp mill in the area.
Anyone who remembers me, I would appreciate a shout.

I was stationed at Glynco from Sept 65 to July 66. I was waiting for CT school in Pensecola. First duty station out of boot and first place away from home. Loved the area, the beach, the forests south, between Brunswick and Jax. Worked in Base Supply, next door to the SKs and across the street from the tracks. Learned to use a forklift there. Had a civilian as a boss, can't remember his name, but he was easy to work for. I remember a SK2 by the name of Todd that loaned me his truck, so I could go see my girl. Remember so many things about the base, the swimming pool, mess hall, Laundromat, base store. Also, learned to drive a deuce and a half. Fun times for a 17 year old. Got my first driver's license while stationed there, from the state police barracks. Brings back so many memories. Went to Pensecola, Adak, and Norfolk from there. Went reserves in 1970.

Remeber the hangars well. Went through GCA school in '64 and CCA school in '69. The only safe place inside the hanger where the classes were held was around the outside next to the class rooms and offices. They had the center all roped off because stuff was alway falling from the roof. Plus when it rained which was almost every afternoon the roof didn't stop much.
