Mc Guire Air Force Postcard Booklet
This original mint postcard booklet is vintage 1965. Can you believe that
was over 44 years ago? The booklet contains TEN never used, still attached,
photochrome postcards of Mc Guire Air Force Base in New Jersey. There are TEN
postcards, each 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with TEN souvenir smaller sized images,
attached. I have a hobby of postcard collecting, buying and selling
on eBay. In the process I ran across these items. So I thought there
might be someone else that would want one. Here's your chance. As they say on
TV, supplies are very limited.
In 1963 I passed through Mc Guire on my way to the 6901st
Special Communication Group in Zweibrücken, Germany. Does anyone else
remember flying in a hammock-like seat which faced the rear of the Air Force
MATS plane? Could that really have happened? Some times my memories seem
Then in 1966 I went through the discharge process at Mc Guire. So these
images bring back memories. One clear memory is that the USAF kept me in an
extra day so I could accumulate enough money to pay for the field jacket the AF
issued to me in basic training, which they wanted back. I had not seen that
jacket for years. And they wanted it back? Or they wanted me to pay for it. Of
course, I had no money. I had been in Europe for 2 1/2 years in the Air Force.
Money? No, I had none. So I worked another day in the USAF to earn another day
of pay which was enough, apparently, to pay for the jacket. Ah, those great,
silly, memories. I'm glad I gave my 4 years.

have to buy this booklet to have the images. That's why I put them on a separate
page. You can copy and print them on your computer. I have set it up so the
images will be 100%. Just a right click, copy, save, then print.
