Marion Brown

I have had some very informative phone calls from Marion “Farmer” Brown from Kirksville, Missouri.  He was stationed at the base for three years and has some very interesting stories and great memories of the air base.  He has provided me with some photos he took while stationed here and I am going to post them here for all to see.
