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 imagined. 

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.
