I was at WKE and LLL about one year each at WKE. I was Chief clerk in the Guard Office.  Capt R.J. Bradley  was Guard Officer. In 1976  I was back to the island and wanted to tour the base but was denied access.  Anyone there at that time, especially if you remember me, let me hear from you.

Lcp Donald Sykes, 1959 - 1961 and/or

I was at Waikele 1959-1961, The only memorable occasion I can remember was that in 1959 they made Hawaii a state, some celebration. Always looked forward to the field day contest we used to have with the other ammo detachments.   Went back for a vacation in 92 and it was all gone. The cane fields where gone and nothing but housing could be seen.   The bases were closed down with civilian rent a cops patrolling the deserted buildings. Sad, I have some found memories of that place. I remember being on duty in the ADT block house and connecting all the guard stations up to outside lines so they could talk to there girl-friends off the base. Sure glad times were different then.   I have a few pictures of the base and a couple of 8mm video tapes I took ( I have a roll of 8mm film of the guard practicing for a competition and dressing up in foreign drill team uniforms performing close order drill) This is real neat.   Well, If anyone was there during my tour, drop me a email.
