Those Places Thursday...Kindley Air Force Base, Bermuda

Kindley Air Force Base


First operated by the U.S. Army Air Forces from 1943-1948 as Kindley Field. Then from 1948-1970 it was operated by the U.S. Air Force as Kindley Air Force Base. From 1970-1995 it was known as Naval Air Station Bermuda. It is currently the site of Bermuda International Airport.

My father, Larry Lee Dillman, was stationed at Kindley from April 1955-January 1957 while he was serving in the USAF. He served as a Radar Repair Technician being promoted in September of 1955 to NCO Staff Sergeant in charge of Radar Maintenance in the 1934th Airways & Air Communications Service (AACS) Squadron.
