TSgtRet Posted January 19, 2010 Share Posted January 19, 2010 I drove down to Kokomo yesterday on company business and was passing Grissom on my way back so I thought I would stop and look around. It's called the Grissom Aeroplex. The museum was closed but took a few pics over the fence. I was stationed there early 76 to Jun 77; back when it was SAC. Base housing is now "Villages at Eagles Point" or something like that. They put siding over the stucco and closed most of the carports into garages and sold old Capehart housing as condos! Found my old house, didn't look too bad, but in general the place is a slum....cars parked in yards, doors hanging off, trashcans in front of the houses and just generally unkept. The Air Reserve "base" is basically the old maintenance/DCM area. I remember living there and the guy in the pickup measuring your grass and turning it in to your squadron commander if it was too tall! Now it's all just dingy and run down... You really can't go back again.:( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
