Worked there 86-89. For a while had the great schedule of work 24 hours and off for 72 hours. I got a lot of golf in at the recreation center in the volcano near Naples.

I worked there from 1990-1992. I ran the backup generators and maintained the electrical (U.S. Army 52E). 24 on, 72 off and got to sleep at night (unless the power went out). Pretty great. Got my Bachelors Degree on my off time.

1977-1979 -- Lived in the barracks in Bldg D on AFSOUTH. Since I was a day worker I had to ride a bus for an hour to get to Proto. There was always one or two games of hearts or spades being played in aisle between the seats. Man, this is bringing back memories. I was there when the DoD offered AFSOUTH a connection into the AUTODIN system. Trouble was, the slowest they could communicate was 600 baud and the fastest line in Proto's system was 300 baud. Luckily, we were able alter the computer software to poll the AUTODIN line often enough to pass traffic successfully. Yes, we were using a computer, a Dec PDP 1135, to move traffic from one NATO teletype machine to another. The wonders of technology.

I was stationed at proto 82-85 fleet center RMC Heddlesten on facebook. Great people there. We lived in Pinetamare. Nothing is the same now. I was just there a couple months ago visiting my son. NATO base is relocated out past Lago di patria only thing there is the Montessori school. NSA is located way out past capo. Carney park is almost abandon too bad. We played a lot of softball and football at Carney Park.
