Perhaps Lincoln Air Force Base.

From 1954 to 1966, Lincoln, Nebraska was home to Lincoln Air Force Base.
Lincoln was regarded as one of America's most important bomber bases of the 1950s

I grew up in Columbus Ohio in the 1950ís when the old Lockbourne AFB was in operation. It was a SAC base at that time. We had a lot of Airforce people in our apartment complex. Sometimes we would get invites to the officers swimming pool on base. Remember all the B 47 bombers lined up and on alert along the runways.

I lived near what was Camp Breckinridge, near Morganfield, Ky. During WWII German POWs were taken here and local farmers used them to help out with everything. It is now a Job Corps Center. One POW painted a mural of Germany on the walls of the Officer's Club. The building is now a museum and rented out for activities but the murals are still on the walls.

Amazing! I was visiting a friend stationed at the SAGE building in Sept of 1979! I had been stationed at Fort Lee A.F.S. in Virginia, which is now defunct.

After assigned at bigger bases, Finley was a shocker. Chow was morning breakfast (Only). Assigned personnel was approx. 60. I was able to bunk in a barracks, and they had a four lane bowling alley. The movie house(LoL)was a sheet, projector, and any wall you wanted to use. I did get to tag along to a trip to Winnipeg with some of the Airmen there. It was 23rd Norad, at Duluth IAP, MN, that sort of requested the manning for that site, and I was the chosen one. I usually traveled back to Duluth on the weekends, about a six hour drive. During the work week, I had to carry paper work to the Mother Base(Grand Forks AFB), which was 50 miles one way.
