About 90 people, including those who comprised the 757th Radar Squadron, attended the first Blaine Air Force Station
reunion on Saturday, September 17 to share stories and reconnect.
Veterans, family members and friends from across the United States, including some local to Blaine and Birch Bay, took part in the festivities.
TJ Juckette, now lives in Florida, and Rick Chinn, from Seattle, collaborated to organize the inaugural reunion.
