Just a note to update my email addresses in hopes to hear from any one stationed in Sinop between 1962 - 1964 and even later. Would like to know the longevity of the operations on the "hill" TUSLOG DET 66-1 and DET 169. My current email address is firstname.lastname@example.org as my primary address or email@example.com as an alternate. Thanks SPC5 Thomas C Musolf
I was there from 1969 to 1970 as a 35B20 Test Equipment Repairman. Worked at Hippo. Enjoyed the assignment, the town and the beach.

Need to get in touch with Scott. Anyone have his email address. Nothing else seems to work. George Durman, Admin/Owner of Merhaba-USMilitary.com.
WAS IN SINOP JAN/DEC 67 BASE SUPPLY HQ CO ANY BODY REMEMBER J NUTWELL
Worked finance 85-86. Jackie Loving
I was there 91-92 as a 98J. Some of best Army times for me.
98J @ Hippy 72-73. Operator for Gigi (I`m sure she was probably replaced shortly after I left since she was getting quite cantankerous in her old age) and SDS 920 computer from 1967. Please try to get your pix reposted, would like to see them. Welcome packet doesn`t come up either. Would enjoy hearing from anyone who was there with me or at SAD III in Korea. Also stationed at NSA between those two overseas tours. Vic, thanks for building the chapel. Was a good friend of Chaplain Billy Graham (No, not that Rev Billy Graham) during my tour there. Later saw him at Vint Hill Farms Station and at Dewitt Army Hospital at Ft. Belvoir. Unfortunately, we lost him a few years ago. He passed away at Brooke Army Medical Center after being a pastor in his home state of Louisiana following retirement.
On the hill 1991-1992. At the All Ranks Club from 3p to 3a. Best drinking and friends of all time. Hated it then...miss it now. Still have friends from then...Bryan Owen and Terry Mace. Will never forget the Crows Nest and all the fun we had then. Hey Cesar!!!! firstname.lastname@example.org
Scott, still can't access the "Welcome Packet".
Hello Scott. You're the first listing in the Sinop section of the Merhaba-USMilitary.com website. (Was MerhabaTurkey.com before I assumed management of the site from Jan Claire.) Keep up the great work.
Iwas on THE HILL three times from 86-91 worked in CCM as a 29G never has one man drunk so much for his country Crows Nest rule
I was there in 69. I was the S-4 clerk at the headquarters building. I too remember the drought and when the club ran out of ketchup so we put mayo on our fries. I think I watched 250 movies at the theater that year. Other than get drunk, not much else to do on post.
I was at USAFS Sinop circa 1986 -1987. As the base engineer I was one of the non-intel officers. I had a great time though. Great memories! If someone remembers me please add a post. Vic - did you build the chapel at the base that existed during my tenure. It was beautiful.
Wow, what a lot of great memories! I was a 33S (before they broke it up) from about Sept 1981 to Sept 1982. I'm terrible with names, but here goes. Out at Hippy, I worked for Carlos Bazan and then Maximo Ortiz Roman. We listened to Ann Murray and Richard Pryor on reel-to-reel, that's all we had! Drank a lot of Raki. Roommates with Brian C. "Pete" Peterson, from CT, I think. Friends with Patrick Scott "Fred" MacMurray, Fred E. Bearden the 4th and someone named Dumb Bitch. Slinky was the radio DJ, I think? I bought my first Sony Trinitron TV with a remote control (!!) and a Sony Betamax, which I think was $600 at that time! Spent a LOT of time at the beach, learned to waterski there. Someone drowned, though, MAJOR bummer for the beach after that. The bus driver would bring us lamacuns for lunch, 100tl apiece! Ekmek was 50tl, I think? What fun!
I was stationed at Sinop from June 91- June 92. I was a Satcom (29Y). It was a great assignment. Met some good people during my time on the hill.
My band played for a week in Sinop in 1988. Perfect Strangers, a five-piece rock covers band from Scotland. On that tour we played Athens, Crete, Izmir, Ankara, Incirlik/Adana and Sinop. Good times :-)
email@example.com was in Sinop 62-64
From April or May of 1983 to same month of 1984. Pilot for the flight detachment. Great Tour!
Worked in the main ops building as a 72E from Oct 76 to Nov 77. Brought my wife and young son over during the tour and we lived offbase. Kept busy playing intramural sports on base. Enjoyed my time there and spent too much time at the club. I remember the USO show in the summer of 77 that brought in NFL players to visit. Got to meet Jack Lambert of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Would enjoying hearing from anyone else who was in Sinop from 76-77. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was in Sinop in 87-88 as a 98J.
I was in Sinop 84-85. I was on of the Shift Supervisors in the communications Center.
I was ASA in Sinop attached to Air Force. From 63 to 64. What the hell ever happened to the fantastic relationship we hasd with the Turks??? I remember going down town and buying treasures that I still have and even going home with some of the locals to break bread. Great Memories ! TUSLOG DET 4 Trick Chief, PFC James Barry Ford
I was in Sinop Jun 91 - Jun 92, i worked at the Black Tech, i broke my wrist about 45 days after i got there, came back a month later, did a radio show in my off time for many months (was kicked off twice for being too Howard Stern like)some times i had a bit too much fun...90% of my memories there were great. i would live to hear from folks that were there with me: email@example.com
Hi, I was called BabyTech and worked alongside the brits. Helped put in our TV system linked to yours :-) was there in 88-89 then came back and got married to a Turkish girl in Feb 90 at the Melia Kasim. Been back a few times since - not the same. the base is falling apart real shame. Bring back the Americans :-)
Stationed in Sinop from January to August of 1963. Worked on the Army's L-23 (later U8) Seminole (Beech Twin Bonanza). Would love to hear from anyone who I may have served with back then. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was on the "hill" from Jan 76 to Feb 77. Worked at Hippodrome and did a stint as a DJ on the radio station.
Forgot to include my email addresses in my previous note. Would love to hear from anyone stationed in Sinop email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Just thinking back to the yesteryears about Sinop, Turkey. I was there 1963-1965. I was initially attached to Det 66-1 which transcended to Det 169 sometime later but not much. Worked at the HF Transmitter site next to the Hanger and worked at the receiver site and occasionally at the tropo site. Wondering today what Det 169 is doing, functional or not. It was fun and interesting and an interesting country that provides a lot of memories of the past duty. Had access to a boat downtown and sailed the Black Sea area. Did a few mail runs as a radio man, etc. Drop a note back if you like… Would like to hear a bit more about Sinop and trying to find some of my HF crew and other acquaintances. Lived in the ground level barracks parallel to HQ and the Tumpane Motor Pool. Somewhat difficult to get a hold of anyone via these Roll Call lists as most are 10 or more years past and many email addresses have changed and not updated. Hopefully this site will reach out to the yesteryears Thanks SPC5 Thomas C Musolf
I was workeds on american base betwen 1975 to 1993 yrs as a Warehouse Supervisor.
I was stationed in Sinop, TUSLOG, Det 169, from 1980--1981, COM Center 72G, Signal. I am looking for anyone who was stationed with me during that time. i NEED TO KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT FINDING OTHERS STATIONED WITH ME DURING THAT TIME. email@example.com Thank you
I was on the hill 4/73-4/74. Worked at tech control as a 26V with John Ellenberg, Corky Fetzko. Did a show on KBOK for a while. Friends with Victor Moore, Don Hartman, Dale Foraker and many others. Had a wonderful time, think about that time alot. Dbrucepalmer@gmail.com
Was at Sinop in 68-9. I remember the water shortage and all the wooden outhouses, including the one named ( and with a big sign attesting to it ) after the SP/6 at Hippy who was a looney.
Forgot to include email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Was in Det 169 from about Aug 69 to Aug 70 at Tech Control and also did everything at KBOK. Loved the time there, I would have stayed longer if I could. Went on a chapel tour of Israel in May 70. Have recording of Bob Hope at Incerlik in Dec 69.
I was the USAF Special Agent from Jun '75 through Nov '76. We were mostly "powered down" during that time. But It was still a great experience. I had my wife and young son during the latter months. Fascinating time.
I was the USAF Special Agent at Sinop 84-85. It was one of my best assignments.
I ran the finance office Nov 84-Dec 85. Sinop was a great assignment with many fond memories.
I was stationed there 90-91 as a 98G(RU). Returned home with tons of gold that I still enjoy to this day. Having had 2 rotations in the Stan, I can say that Sinop was my second favorite duty station behind Monterey.
I was a 33P stationed there from May 1989 to July 1991.
I was the Finance Officer in Sinop 1986-87.
Was on the "Hill" twice; '64-65' & '66-67'. Planning to get back there this April, 2012 with my son living in Oman. Loved the chai, ekmek, simet, kavaklidere,--Gule Gule.
I too was stationed on the Hill from Oct 83 to Aug 84 this was one of the best experiences I had in the Army. Cdm345@gmail.com
I was there in 91-92 as a 98J. Most knew me as ED. I apologize to Rif and Mutant for my part in their taping(lipstick) and to the techs at Hippy for all the breakage. email@example.com
Correction - I was there from '85 - '86 as a 33P.
I was an 05K there from 87-88. Looking back on it, that was a pretty amazing year. I was fortunate enough to play in a band called Tangent. I remember playing a couple of times for the Turkish-American Society. I remember playing for a pretty large crowd in Samsoon. I definitely miss the lamb, tea, and the fresh HOT bread. I remember hanging out in the Chai Hanne with Steve Wagner playing OK (Gin Rummy w/Domino chips). I remember some of the most amazing sunsets that I have ever seen.
Well, so far I will be on the Hill bevore anyone on the board. Arrived Feb 66, Dep May 67. I was there when Hippydrome opened for business. An 05K on a trick I can't remember. That remembering thing has gotten more difficult here of late.
This page contains scans of the "Welcome Book" that was produced in 1989, as well photos that I took while on the hill. If you were there in '89, there is a good chance you will see yourself. There are also a few photos taken from the water tower and the "water" tower on the Main Ops site. Sorry the site has been down for bit...see below.
Welcome to my home page for USAFS Sinop. I'm finally able to resore it today, April 25, 2008, after dealing with Comcast for MANY hours on the phone. Apparently, when I moved in December 2006, they screwed up and created a shadow account for me. When they starting updating their web page service a few months ago, my page got very screwed up. Initially I lost the guest book, then it all died about two weeks ago. Soooo, here goes again.
