My family was stationed there when I was a pre-teen in the late 60s early 70s. I have the best memories of Whiteman! I can still picture it all in my head.I remember when the "new" movie theater opened.I loved the library there and we went to Kiddie Bingo at the NCO club almost every weekend.Went to the movies every Sat afternoon watching Elvis movies and stuff like The Great Race and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I remember going to the BX and there was a little snack bar with a juke box where I used to play "To Sir with Love" by Lulu.I had my first dances with boys at The Youth Center dances.I think the band only knew a few songs "Alright Now" "Vehicle" and "Crosstown Traffic"-that might have been the bands name too.Went to the pool everyday and my Dad rented the NCO pool for my birthday party. There was a little camper that sold corn dogs right by the pool.I went to ceramics,Vacation Bible school and played softball.I loved being a Girl Scout too.
We had so much freedom to ride our bikes anywhere and play in the woods. I feel sorry for kids that have to have their parents drive them everywhere.We lived at 820 McGuire Street. I would so love to take a sentimental journey through the past at Whiteman someday. I really loved it.

If interested, we do have a Facebook page titled "Whiteman AFB, MO (former and current residents)"

It's for current and former members of Whiteman. Take a look. You can even upload old pictures you may have of the base.

Although I wasn't there when you were, I can tell you the base has improved by leaps and bounds. If you came back for a tour you might not recognize anything, but maybe a few street names.
