  1. The buildings in 2008 pic are the start of a commercial center. By now it’s probably a very busy business district


  2. Doesn’t look like when I was there as an Air Traffic Controller, 344th ADD. I was there from about March until end of September 1972. Finally leaving Camp Holloway on October 8th 1972. They finally blew up the tower and we were living in an aircraft reventment in conex and some shelter we threw together – no facilities or shower. We ate rations when available. At one point myself and the radar / generator repairman almost didn’t make it out.
    Always felt bad that I came back and so many didn’t.
