I think that we all owe a debt of gratitude to those who fought the Cold War and kept if from going hot.

It's a tribute to the design of the B-52 that it's still in use by the Air Force.

I was in a MAC Wing on a SAC base (Dyess).

It was fun to watch Their Shenanigans & not have to join in them.

My Dad spent two years with SAC back in the late 1970's coordinating flight schedules. He was also a waiter at the Officer's Club. More than one bad tipper found themselves on alert, sitting in their plane on the tarmac for 24 hours waiting for war.

Cool flashback video. Only question that I have is why is there a siren on the flightline car taking the crew to the plane? It's not like there's a big worry about cutting through massive amounts of traffic.

Another film on the SAC Command Post, circa 1963.

(Sorry, can't hotlink to the films themselves.)

SAC was a very focused command. Absolutely dedicated to the mission of planning and training for nuclear war, so they'd never have to actually have to execute it.

I was SAC-umcised in 1989.

They were authorized to go as fast as possible on base streets. They also had the run of non-housing areas on base, as long as they went as a crew. It was not uncommon to have crews scramble out of the Burger King, the exchange, or the movie theater. And when the klaxon went off, you got out of the way, or a Ford F350 pushed you out of the way doing 80mph to the alert pad.

oh, yes, the MAC guys would be having a BBQ out back while I was walking a red line around a B-1 Bomber for 12 hours as nukes were being uploaded
We used to hate you guys for that!

I got on a SAC base, (Dyess AFB, TX)kind of towards the end of the SAC era things were different in a SAC Command
Always in exercise mode

But I loved every minute of it.

One of my biggest fears as a close in sentry standing in front of a BUFF was for the responding crew to fuck up the sign-countersign during a scramble.

NEVER screw with the scheduler. That's the easiest way to never get another really important day off as long as he's in charge of your time.

ETA: Like I used to tell my Lts in the missile squadron when they'd screw the pooch––I have to send you on alert, I don't have to bring you back.

My brother was in the Air force in the Early 70's. Guarded Air bases, he was an SP. Mom has a picture of him with his beret, OD greens with the old school pistol belt with the Suspenders, carrying an M16. Had aviator glasses on, bet he thought he was the shit.

He gave me stuff all the time when i was little. A strategic air command patch was one. That patch is awesome. Gauntleted hand holding lightning bolts. Another one he gave me had a winged sword, don't remember what the writing said on that one.

Also safer. The crews weren't issued their own firearms––they went with the aircraft/weapon, and when you signed for the weapon, you also signed for the pistol. So accounting for a .38 and 18 rds of ammo every 24 hours without the benefit of a clearing barrel is safer to accomplish than accounting for a 1911 and X rounds of ammo + mags. Probably easier on the weapon, too.

I took over many an alert where I signed for "10 mated reentry systems, two firearms serial #XXXXXXXX and XXXXXXX, and 18 rounds of ammunition each."

SAC wasn't around in 2008.


The mission is still there...

It was renamed USSTRATCOM...

I was stationed at Offutt for 6 years...I've been in some of those places in that film (years later of course).

I had some great days in SAC but it wasn't always easy. Yes, McPeak is a complete A-hole!

You and I shared some ramp time dude. When did we do last generation, Fall 91 or was it 92? I was still Missiles, but they were short bodies and grabbed us off break, so I jumped off the posting bus and stood (for the last time ever) in front of B-1 as Close In Sentry. We knew it was the last one, so even though it was snowing hard, and freezing, I took one for the team for nostalgia sake. Damn, I think I was a Buck Sgt then too. Ellsworth 1990-1994. Good times.
