This site is dedicated to the memory of the 6937th Communications
Group and to all those stationed at Peshawar Air Station.
PAS was established in 1958 as an isolated detachment of the United
States Air Force Security Service located in a remote area south of
the city of Peshawar, Pakistan.
The veterans of the 6937th are proud of their service. It is
the intent of this website to help preserve that pride by sharing
the history and memories of this important intelligence unit while
hopefully reuniting some past friendships or creating some new ones.
All alumni of PAS are welcome to send us their special memories,
experiences, or photos that they would like included in this
website. All visitors are encouraged to sign the Guestbook and
participate in the on-line Forum.
Special thanks to all the Alumni of Peshawar Air Station for their
contribution to this website. Without your photos,
information, and above all, your encouragement, this project would
not be possible.
The Peshawar Air Station was formally closed on January 7, 1970, but
the memories continue to live on for the "Peshawar Bandits" who
served in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan.

Memories of my time at Peshawar Air Station came
flooding back. Having lived in that part of the
"world" for 15 months of my life, it wasn't difficult to
understand many of the issues that the rest of the country was now
hearing about for the first time.

My time at PAS was from July 1966 to Sept. 1967 as a 2T

to keep the spirit and memory of PAS alive.
