A small piece of the US in The Netherlands disappeared in 1994. Unfortunately the base is closed since 2008 and officially carried over as of today (Jun 12th 2009) to local authorities. As an aircraft enthusiast I visited Soesterberg many times on air shows.Future will be partly housing, natural reserve and also a new defense museum combining both Army Museum and Air Force Museum (to be completed in 2013). So always a good reason to come back here. You guys and girls (former Wolfhounds) are all welcome! I miss your presence here.

Hello everyone. Who can help me with some photographs of the NATO airshow at Soesterberg in 1958. I am researching in particularly a photograph of Capt. Walt Irwin of the 83th FIS who was at Soesterberg with an F-104B Starfighter. Thanks for your help

I was sent TDY to the 32nd FIS from the 496th FIS at Hahn Germany, to support operations while the 32nd went to William Tell. It was the best time that I spent in Europe! The Dutch treated us so very nice. I will always remember going to Den Dolder (Der Heinch?? a very friendly bar). Riding bicycles after too many beers and the stern warning from the Dutch police. I toured Holland with A1C Dave Broadway, his girlfriend Ineke wanted us to learn about Holland. We had a great time visiting many different places. Markem, Vollendam, Rotterdam, it was so scenic and everyone was very nice. I guess I forgot to mention flowers and windmills and Amsterdam. A flood of memories thinking about that summer. I have enjoyed visiting your site, a very welll organiized and informational place. Thank you. Dick Vedas Chandler Arizona USA

Man I sure do miss Soesterberg. My tour got cut short, I had to take a humanitarian assignment back the states to be with my dying Mother. I had a blast. I used to live on the west end in the old 2 story dorm across from the BX and it was next to the gym. I played for the football team while I was there. I live in Tampa, Florida. I'm retired now I see T.J. Payne who played too and worked at the hospital. Big up to Steve Jones (clinic) and Nate, and Big O (Orson) I know everybody remembers Pinocchio's club and that other Hip-Hop spot in Utrecht. Long live Soesterberg!!!

My son collected those little metal airplanes some years ago that cost about $3.00. I could never find an F15 for myself until yesterday, 25FEB09, it has a "Wolfhounds" decal on it and on the tail is "CR". I've never forgotten the 32TFS tail designation and I still can't believe I found it. I just googled 'Air Base Soesterberg' and here I am. I loved 'Camp Nasty Ass' and spent my entire enlistment there... I would have re-upped there except that the 31651L AFSC was phased out.
