I've worked at every site on your lists, as well at sites in RI, NH, Vt, Maine, NY, & hundreds of others...

The photos you have up are from a nearby facility not fort Duvall or the peninsula in Weymouth, now Webb State Park. These photos are from the Turkey Hill facility in Hingham/ Cohasset and the launcher facility in Cohasset (now the town transfer station).

I have been looking a long time for more information on the 739th AAA Missile Battallion Swansea site, I was a launch control operator "C" section 1956 to 1958 and I have some pictures that i would like to share. Hey Stanley W. Stec we were there at the same but I don't recall your name. It would sure be great to get in touch with some of the guys. Hey Stan were you with the crew when we went to Red Canyon New Mexico, I went down in the advance party to get the missiles ready for firing. I have a lot of GREAT memories of the 2 years at the base in Swansea and I surely hope that more guys sign to this site. Thanks, Jim Curto

I remember the WHYN 'bomb shelter studio' too well. I was the overnight DJ when it went operational, and not all of us were pleased with longer run to the restroom it entailed. After a few days, management decided that there would NOT be an ashtray in the control room (it's that round dark thing on the desk under the 2nd microphone in the posted picture) and almost all of us smoked! In retaliation, the decorative fake orange tree just outside the studio began to be filled, and refilled with cigarette butts. Mike Millard Ft. Lauderdale

I served at the Swansea, Ma. site during 1956-57 in the target tracking section (IFC area). I was not in the original group but was sent there as a replacement and trained on the target-tracking radar. The popular song at the time was "Old Cape Cod".
