Attention Airmen!

There's a new Montauk Project!

Did your United States Air Force military service include time spent at the USAF 773rd Radar Station, Montauk Point, New York?

If so, the ad hoc 773rd Radar Squadron reunion committee would like to hear from you!

On a warm and sunny Saturday, September the 14th, 2013, Larry Goodwin, Rychal Kuratomi, Bruce Miller, and Richard Swartwout rendezvoused at the Shagwong Tavern in Montauk, Long Island to reminisce about old times and begin planning for a reunion during September, 2014.

After downing a few pints at the Shagwong, the group set off for the old 773rd Radar site at Montauk Point. On foot, of course.

Several of the old buildings, including barracks 109, the gym, the mess hall, the BX, Ops, and the FPS-35 tower are intact and the entire site has been incorporated into the Montauk Point New York State Park.

The rusty, deteriorating sail still sits atop the 35 Tower, and along with the remaining buildings brought back many memories of by-gone years.

So get in touch! Sit down and send us an email at
