I was stationed at AFSOUTH from 69 to 72, and worked at PROTO most of the time. Lived in a villa up the coast with two other guys, had a Fiat 124 and wine delivered weekly. What a life! Was a Fixed Station Controller located between TARE (IBM 360 running traffic) and Crypto. Navy ran the mess hall and food was great. Still have my "Order of the Mole" certificate hanging on the wall. Certainly a great alternative to Vietnam!

Well, what do you want me to say?
First of all, they actually purchased this property, you can look that up (Blockshopper), it was later on transferred (not sold) to a company aka real estate LLC.
Plus, the New York freaking Times ran a story about this being their house and how they renovated it and how much time they spend there and what not.
Can we just leave it at that?

This is the grounds of the former "Tatoi" palace of the then King of Greece.
The monarchy was voted away in 1974 and the compound has been under lock and key for decades while judicial reviews and legal fights continue over ownership, its contents and the person of the former King being allowed to return to Greece.
Hence the rather abandoned looks of the place.
